Question about NMB Technologies Panaflo/NMB-MAT 120x38mm low speed fan FBA12G12L1A Fan Kit
I am trying to replace a NMB-MAT cooling fan. The markings on it are 6G10A73 -4PX Model FBA06A12L DC 12V 0.13A. I can't find this exact fan. Can you tell me what replaces it?
SOURCE: CHIP COOLING FAN FAILED
These fans fail on an alarmingly regular basis.
In the past, if I can't find a fan, I simply remove the fan and leave the housing attached to the chip. It acts like a heat sink. Sometimes I think that the fans are just there to look neat!
You "may" be able to find a small heat sink that will do the job without a fan. That is another thing I have done. By searching your local supplier for just a heat sink, you might have better luck.

The fan replacement is not hard, but it is fiddly.
You need to pull out the battery case to remove DC power. To do this - front display cover off by pushing up the plastic tabs inside the bottom front of the cover and tapping the top of the cover to release the top tabs. Undo the screws on the metal plate which hold the battery in place. Take off the UPS outer metal case cover using a Torx screwdriver. Undo the 4 screws on the back holding the steel fan cover. Using needlenose pliers or a very small screwdriver, carefully remove the fan connector from the back PCB board. This connector is fragile and tends to break easily. Pull out the fan. Note the location of the 2 screws on the inside fan cover. I use a NMB-MAT Model 3610KL-04W-B50 12 volt DC replacement fan that I order in specially from any wholesale electronics shop as you want the maximum CFM out of the fan. You need to cut the existing fan leads and solder the existing connector leads to the new fan lead, using heat shrink tubing. The connector goes back in only one way- note the dimple on the side. The leads can be a little longer on your completed fan assembly. The fan manufacturer's label should face the back of the UPS.
This solution is for a PW9120-1500. I assume your UPS is PW9120-3000 or larger. Check the model of the existing fans.
