Grinding Cooling Fan

My RCA receiver, model # RT2870, Has a grinding cooling fan. When I turn the unit on it makes this noise for about 20 mins then will slowly go away. It is very annoying so I'd appreciate if I could get some help mayb with how to fully clean or oil, or where I could buy a replacement fan. Thanks

I would remove top cover and see how easily accessible the fan is it shouldnt be too hard. Once removed check out the specifications on it as far as current and DC voltages and most likely you can find one at roadioshack website and order one for under 10 dollars. You cannot oil these. You spray oil on it then when fan turns on it will spray intire inside of you receiver with oil not a good idea. I hope this helps. Good luck

I have a same exact problem in my RT2870. This is probably one of the cooling fans going bad. Does anyone know where to get the replacement fan and/or how hard would it be to replace it?

Cooling Fan


The cooling fan supplies cool air to the unit to prevent overheating.

Please observe the following cautions for your safety.

Make sure the unit is well-ventilated. If the unit has poor ventilation, the temperature inside the unit may rise

and may damage it.

Do not obstruct the cooling fan or ventilation holes. (If the cooling fan or ventilation holes are covered with a
newspaper or cloth, heat may build up inside the unit and fire may result.)


So look at the fan and make sure it's turning. Pick out the dust balls. Give the system room to breath (Page 13: 4" clearance from the fan)

I have a Technics stereo integrated amplifier SU G75. The cooling fan began making chirping noises then stopped. Now every time I turn the stereo on I get a overload message. Could it be the cooling fan...


It chirped because the bearings were worn out, then it froze up and isn't moving any air. Get it replaced. DO NOT run the unit if it keeps overloading or you will have a bigger problem.

Well, I just returned the unit. RCA replied with the following solution:
Let the unit sit with the AC power cord out of the wall for a couple of
hours. Then hit the power button 10-15 times (with the AC power cord still
out of the wall socket!) and then try again.

Loud whirring noise from home theater receiver


Sounds like a cooling fan is worn out. If the warranty has expired, remove the cover and there should be a cooling fan. Remove the fan. Try cleaning it out with a can of compressed air. If this does not work take the fan to best buy or circuit city and buy a replacement. I hopet his solves your problem!

RT2250 turns itself off


Are you trying to run this unit at 50% or more? I can understand this problem if that's the case. Just turn it down. If you need more "grunt", it's time for more power amping...accordianman
