SOURCE: Fan check shows up on display.

Can you see or hear if the fan is running? Is there sufficient clearance (4 inches) between it and the nearest surface for airflow? Is it clogged up with dust bunnies? You may be able to fix it yourself.

Unplug the unit. Look inside the vent at the rear. Reach in with a non-conductive probe to see if the fan turns freely. If not, it's bound up and needs replacement or unclogging.

If it turns freely with power off but doesn't rotate with power on, it's dead.

If it turns sufficiently fast with power on and you still have Fan Check, it's a sensor.

The fan has probably failed. There are screws that hold the top casing on, remove them and check to see that the fan is not covered in dust or somehow not plugged in.

SOURCE: Samsung Theater System keeps flashing 'fan chk'

When it tells you to check the fan it mans the device is overheating.
you can try buying a air spray and spraying it into the device/use a vacuum cleaner on the fan ports in case there is dust blocking the system

Samsung Theater System keeps flashing 'fan chk' when I turn it on and then shuts down two minutes later. The Fan is spinning. Does the fan need to be replaced, or is somthing else wrong with the unit.

When I turn on the unit I get a symbol that is a circle with a diagonal line through it and then the unit turns off. Any ideas? (Samsung HT XQ100 Home Cinema)


Your fan is bad.

The system is intelligent. It knows it will overheat without a fan. It also knows there is a problem with the fan, so it throws its self into self-protect mode to keep from overheating.

Have a tech check your fan.

My samsung home cinema system - HT-X250; Trips off every couple of minutes with "Fan Check" higlighted on the display


Had this same issue with my Samsung HT-X50, it seems these systems have cheap fans. Mine was under warranty but when I contacted samsung they wanted me to pay to ship it to them. **** that, it would of cost me 70 to ship.

What I did was open the unit take the fan and go to a computer store asking for a similar one, I got all this done for about 10 bucks. **** that samsung warranty
