How do I replace the fan motor? also, how do I get the fan off?
To remove the fan, you need to remove the front grill. Unscrew the 4 screws on the corner of the grill, then remove the grill. The fan can be removed by just pulling on the hub. The fan motor is attached to the machine by two nuts that face the back of the machine. So you need to remove the guts of the machine to unscrew the nuts.
To remove the fan motor, you need unscrew the screw that is above the AC plug, to remove the back grill, then remove the filter plate. Once that is removed, you need to remove four screws that holds the lower plate that houses the AC plug. Once that plate is unscrewed, then disconnect the power conector from the main board and then the green ground lug to free the AC plug.
You will need to remove the main board. To do that, you will need to disconnect the keypad/display connector. It the one that looks like a telephone RJ connector, its located near middle of the main board. Next, you need to unlatch the red wire that runs down from the main board to the front of the machine. Once that is undone, then the alunimum chasis that hold the main board can be slid backwards giving you access to unbolt the two nuts that hold the fan motor.
Hope this helps you.
