Question about Pioneer VSX-D511 Receiver
Hiya I have a pioneer vsx-d511 receiver and have just noticed after 5 years of use that the internal fan never spins up. I have noticed that it has three wires going to it, so I was wondering whether it was temperature or volume controlled. However if it is supposed to spin at all times, can a replacement fan be found? Thanks Sam
There should be a thermistor mounted on the heatsink which will trigger the fan. The fan will not likely turn on if you are using your receiver for 2-channel music. Try using all amp channels by playing a DVD in DTS or AC-3 audio mode and crank up the volume - lots of bass will do the job. You can place a piece of tissue paper near the vent so you don't have to use a flashlight to watch and wait until it turns on. My receiver takes about 3 songs from the Eagles DTS DVD at high levels before the fan would turn on. As soon as the temperature is lower than the limit, the fan would turn off.
