The fan should be working from the moment you push the on button, and increase the rpm's as the temp rides inside the laptop. In a laptop it is very critical in keeping the components from overheating and failing.

How to fix a jammed cooling fan

Opening the case is simply a matter of removing the case screws and opening the case. It\'s not difficult. Just be aware of small parts that may come loose in the process.

A few good tips:

  1. Have a clear work space with enough room to set out the parts as they are removed

  2. Projector cases often use a variety of screw lengths and sizes. Draw a map of the projector and place the screws in their positions to help you remember where the screws go when it comes to reassembly (see diagram)

  3. Take pictures for reference later

  4. It might make it easier if you remote the lamp first. Remember, it\'s important not to touch the lamp or any glass part with your bare fingers. It will cause black spots on the lamp and possibly premature failure

  5. Don\'t force the case closed on reassembly. Check for parts that aren\'t seated correctly.


Don\'t bother trying to repair the fan. These are often MagLev types and it\'s much easier to just replace them with an equivalent part. Here\'s a 5000 pound sterling projector on which I replaced the fan.

1999 mazda 626 cause overheat ???

I would look at the owners manual and make sure that it calls for a 40 amp fuse. Maybe it's not the right size. But you don't want to go too big because if it is shorting out in the wiring it could cause a fire. Make sure you have the right size fuse if not, there is a short in the wiring or in the fan motor itself.

Heater don't work

start with the basics check fuses & then power & ground to the motor with key on & fan switch on. if you have power & ground then the fan is bad.

Fan is running & noisy

I have an Acer x3400 and after a couple of months started making this horrible noise coming from one of the fans, at the time I solved it by hitting the bottom of the case, thinking that it was the case vibrating, it worked for a while, but it was not the case, as I found out the hard way it was the power supply fan jamming/overheating and by lightly hitting the bottom of the case I was setting the fan back in place. Long story short, moved my hardware out of the stock case, got a new power supply, decked out the new case with a ton of red LED fans, added 16 G's of Mushkin Silverline RAM and a 2 Terabyte Seagate Barracuda Hard drive along with a 1TB Western Digital for backup. It's as quiet as a door mouse :) I run my PC pretty hard though out of the 2-3 years I have had it, it's only gotten about an hour or two of downtime so hardware failure is expected but besides the power supply, I really haven't had any. But I have automatic backups set to run every 5 hours and duplicates of the backups going to my NAS so bring it on. Anyway I like to run off into little tangents like these, I don't know if anyone finds them informative but back to the point. Replace the power supply; see if the noise stops, if not replace CPU cooling tower, if the problem still persists and you have a case fan change that out too. But in all likely hoods it's the power supply. They're pretty cheap and easy to install so threes no reason not to and everything else I'm talking about is tooJ. Happy computing!

Fan just quit working one day. Nothing happens when I turn the light switches on and off.

Is it powered thru a light switch? Sometimes those do just quit. You can remove the old switch & replace it. Go to Lowe's/Home Depot, the switch itself is fairly inexpensive (probably less than $5). Remember to turn off the breaker to that room/switch before you do anything. The installation itself is simple - just wire + to + and ground it. Did you notice any kind of noise/smell before it stopped working? If the motor is burnt out - just replace the whole fan (unless you feel like tinkering with breaking it down & finding a replacement motor). Sometimes the lite switch on the fan itself will go out - parts for that can be found at about any larger hardware store, but sometimes that's not an easy repair (depends on what type of lite kit is on the fan). However, if that were the problem -it would not cause the blades not to turn, it would only keep the lights from coming on. Try replacing the light switch that turns the fan on/off first (the one on the wall, not on the fan itself) - hopefully that'll solve it for you. Good Luck.

My computer always shutdown by itself . can you please help me ? i don't know what to do . it my first pc . thanks

That's an overheating problem. You can try to run the system with the side off of the computer to help cool it down, or you can add additional fans to the case. Also, keep the inside of your case clean and get rid of the dust. That will help improve the airflow.
Good luck!
