Question about Dell (6F858) Cooling Fan

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 1525 Dual Core fan making way too much noise. Need to repair ASAP. This laptop use to be my old job's service computer before I quit and because I had it all set up with dual system boot and my personal stuff I chose to buy a new and give it to them as an exchange set up for their needs before I left; now after a while this one the fan is make excessive noise and the only documentation I have is of the new one I bought which still under warranty as well but diffferent serials of course so I'm afraid to take it in anywhere for repair and now have to fix it myself. I'm computer literate but always worked and fixed desktops and never a laptop so i'm a little scared and i use this computer constantly so i can't do without it. Please help!!! This computer is less than a year old and bought from Best Buy which are going out of business anyways. Live in a little town so there are limited resources. Thank you in advance, yours truly. Willie

    I had this laptop for 13 months. I don't remember the fan running constantly and making this rattling crinkling noise before. In Feb. Dell had a tech come out to replace palm rest, I don't think it is connected to anything he did. I just started to notice the fan noise last week. I have the last update for BIOS and that did not help.

    I have the same problem. Unfortunately, the Dell Customer Service constantly refuses to repair it. They say it is perfectly normal. I don't think it is: after all, it is a Core 2 Duo! It should not get so hot so quickly!
    They have no solution so they claim there is no problem.
    I am never going to buy a Dell again. Never!

The fan sould be repairable. I know Best Buy isn't going out of business anytime soon (unless they are shutting down down a store in your area) but Circuit City is. You can contact Dell as well using the 800 number and give them the service tag number on the computer. That way you can see if its still under warranty.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and recently the fan is showing some noise and its heating up the Lappy


Get a can of compressed air and blow out the vents on the bottom and side of the laptop. The fan could just be out of balance with dust. It it still makes a noise afterward, the fan itself may be going out and need to be replaced.

I would contact Dell if it's still under warranty. If not, their out of warranty repair services are usually fairly reasonable, as are local repair shops. Unfortunately, there's not usually a quick-fix for this.

Cooling fan Rattle


It should still be under warranty at 6 months old.
If you attempt to repair yourself, you will void the warranty.
Talk to Dell before you do anything.
