This is the CPU cooling fan used in Lexmark X500n and X502n multi-function units. Lexmark parts dep't says they can only sell me the controller board that includes the fan for $1200. I'd really like to find a source for just the fan. Thanks

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