Before replacing the fan motor try hot wiring it to see if the motor will run. Disconnect the two wire connector at the fan motor and run two jumper wires from the battery. If you get the polarity backwards the fan will still run, just backwards... but it will answer the question of whether or not the motor is bad. If the motor runs on the hot wire setup, it's good and the problem lies somewhere else like the radiator fan relay.
This relay is located near the driver's side front wheel well. Go under the car and find the wires leading to the radiator fan on the drivers side. Trace them back and you will see they go to a waffer shaped solid state relay bolted to the car near the wheel well. It measures about 1 1/2 inches across and is about 1/4 inch thick.
Severe corrosion or heat damage to the aluminum mounting bracket may be the culprit. .
Yes you can. Remove the case of the computer. Vacuum out all the fluff on the heat sink and fan using a 2" paint brush and the crevice tool on your vacuum. Vacuum the grills and vents on the front, back and sides of your computer. Fans are cheap, so you may elect to just replace it. Get ball bearing fans as although they are a fraction more expensive, they last longer. Consider adding more case fans at the front and rear of the case. Don't forget to also clean the Power Supply Unit. Also your video card if it has a fan? I used to do my old P3 every summer as it would shut down on overheat.
If your a/c have a housing, set the upper front side 1/2" away from the wall and the lower front side 1 1/2" away from the wall. Some units with plastic base pan should be inclined more defending on the height of the drain line fitted in each model.
These models have two fans. One is located inside the unit. The fan inside blows air across the cooling coils. With the door open this fan is usually running other than defrost cycle. If this fan has stopped it will cause the compressor to overheat and the relay will cycle.
The second fan equally as important is located under a fiberboard cover accessible from the back of the unit at the bottom. This fan is usually noticeable by an air flow sound. Usually air flow is detectable out of the front grill. If this fan fails to operate, blocked due to a major build up of lint the compressor will overheat and cycle as you hear,
i have a1994 cutlass ciera S, 3.1 motor, it has 5 relays, from the radiator side to the right fender 1) fuel pump, 2) A/C, 3)blower motor,4) fan#1, 5) fan#2, fan #1&2 refer to the radiator fans,#1 fan is the puller fan (motor side) #2 is the pusher fan,( in front of the radiator) ,hope this helps.
Fan relay is located under pass headlight. Remove light assembly, use 2 1/2 " hole saw to drill hole in plastic housing ,3"from back wall, 3'' from left side.This will put you right over relay. Unscrew two bolts,replace. Relay was $40.... dealer wanted$350 to remove front bumper to replace it.
Insufficient information, but try this for starters:
Make sure the laptop sits on a hard surface and the fan vents are not covered/clogged.
1) Run windows only on a fully charged battery and see if it overheats 2) If not, run media player only, and look for the same
If it overheats in either step, you have a hardware/software problem.
Hardware problem could be that the fan has failed completely and needs to be replaced.
Software problem could be incorrect fan settings, although I do not think you can turn the fan OFF on a laptop.
IF the laptop overheats in Step 1, I would definitely suspect a hardware problem. In that case, run the laptop but do NOT log into windows. Go into the BIOS (check fan settings in there, if there are any).. leave it running in BIOS and see if it overheats then.
It's not your fans that's causing the problem. It's the XBOX itself. The Xboxes generally overheat and this has been a big problem for Microsoft. Alot of companies are actually reflowing these system, reheating the solder under the chips allowing them to connect back down to the points on the board.
You will need your system reflowed. Contact a repair shop.
