Question about Lexmark X502N All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

How do you change the fan on a Lexmark x502n?

Have a Lexmark x502n with a "Warning: CPU fan is locked" error. From reading the website, it appears that you can simply buy a FD245010MB fan from CyPower to replace the broken fan. What process is involved in actually changing over the fan?

You'll need to remove the panel just above the power switch.  Two screws does as I recall.  Also you'll need to buy connectors for the fan because it comes with bare wires.  

After hours of searching I found the right connectors for the fan since it comes with bare wires when ordered from www.cypower.com. 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.

Good luck!

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.

Cpu fan is locked


The CPU fan if no longer spinning. To confirm this, you need to open the RIP cage cover. If the CPU fan is not moving, check if the CPU fan cable is properly connected to the J-Fan1 on the RIP board. If it not, please connect it properly. If it is connected, you will need a replacement RIP board.

My Lexmark 500n has a warning message [ WARNING: CPU Fan is Locked ]what does that mean?Seems to print fine but the message is ;( Anybody know what I should do?


Might be some foreign debris stopping the cpu fan from running and cooling the cpu.

I wouldn't leave this problem for long since a fried cpu will mean the end of your printer

WARINING CPU FAN locked on Lexmark X502N


Sounds like this will need to be looked at by a qualified service technician. You may want to contact Lexmark Customer Support. If your printer is still under warranty it should probably be covered.

Warning: CPU Fan is LOCKED -- Lexmark X500n printer


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.
