    .. you need to replace the 24VDC fan on the controller board (on the side of unit, remove the screw above the AC power plug and screw that holds the metal cover). Lexmark claims they can't sell just the fan.

    The fan markings show:

    Y.S. Tech
    DC Brushless Fan
    DC 24V 0.10A
    made in china

    If you find a source, please let us know.

    A suitable replacement for this fan is available. The Sunon replacement is superior to the original fan.

    A good replacement is available now on ebay. This fan is exact size and has superior performance to the original.

    I have a temp fix:
    Take fan out.
    Take off the sticker on the fan.
    Spray a little WD40.

    Don't spray while in the printer! The fan is pretty east to get out. First screw above the power adapter, take off that panel. One more screw after that. It should keep it going till the replacement comes in.

Cpu fan is locked

The CPU fan if no longer spinning. To confirm this, you need to open the RIP cage cover. If the CPU fan is not moving, check if the CPU fan cable is properly connected to the J-Fan1 on the RIP board. If it not, please connect it properly. If it is connected, you will need a replacement RIP board.

CPU fan locked

Wow, after hours of searching I found the right connectors for the fan since it comes with bare wires when ordered from  (The fan to order is a 24v DC Y.S. Tech FD245010MB.)  The connectors are from JST America and can be ordered from 

Part 455-1126-ND (housing that takes pins spaced 2mm apart)
Part 455-2148-1-ND (pins)

You have to order at least 10 housings and 100 pins but all of that costs about $2.50.

You can also order the crimp tool but that costs $1,300.  I'll just use a needle nose pliers.

Good luck!

My Lexmark 500n has a warning message [ WARNING: CPU Fan is Locked ]what does that mean?Seems to print fine but the message is ;( Anybody know what I should do?

Might be some foreign debris stopping the cpu fan from running and cooling the cpu.

I wouldn't leave this problem for long since a fried cpu will mean the end of your printer

How do you change the fan on a Lexmark x502n?

Yes sir, Make sure its the same Voltage/Amperage, connector style, hole configuration where it screws into the frame. Looks like on this printer the fan is on the right side? Just a guess. If so, power off the printer, remove the cover and remember how the fan looks now so you can put it on the same way. I mean make sure of the air direction, etc. A 2 wire connector that you can find by following the wires to the engine board and remember, again, where and how it was plugged in. Also, if you can download the lexmark service manual PDF, its pretty clear as far as locations and part numbers and such.

Warning: CPU Fan is Locked!

You have a fan that is not working.
Just be happy that is isn't the photoconductor.
What kind of computer is it?
If a fan isnt working it is not the end of the world,... Front fans go all the time and are basically useless anyway.
If it is hampering our ability to print lemme know and I will delve further into this.
I will need the make and model of the computer/printer.

Warning: CPU Fan is LOCKED -- Lexmark X500n printer

I fixed this in 12 minutes. I took the fan out, lubed it up with a high-tech petroleum based lube and freed up the fan. Reinstalled and no more error message. We ordered a new one so when this fails, we'll be ready. It seems that moisture got into the axle and corroded it and caused it to lock up.
