Thinkpad T40 2373 fan replacement: long or short?

Hi-

I have a noisy fan (intermittent grinding noise) that I need to replace on my t40 2373. When I search for parts on EBay I have the option of getting a "long" or "short" fan assembly. Is there any way to tell which I need without disassembling the laptop?

thanks-

Pablito

    Fan is intermittently grinding, after being in my bag for a while. Reverts back to normal when closed and carried for a minute or two (i.e. when its moving). Could be a wire or something hitting the fan, but I've no means of opening it

  1. MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  3. Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  4. Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replaced.

    My laptop is making a loud noise


    Hi again.
    It sounds to me that the PC is overheating, get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents and the CPU fan (located underneath the laptop) once your happy that all the dust has been blown out restart the PC and it should be quieter from then on.

    Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    Hp laptop dv9500 noisy and loud fan ...


    The sound you are hearing is probably the fan, This fan has a noisy bearing and will eventually lock up and the fan will stop spinning and therefore the CPU will overheat and shutdown.
    The fan needs to be replaced.

    Fan making noise help


    Start by taking the machine apart, cleaning the fan, and checking the connection. The failure may be due to debris buildup or a loose connection, and I've also seen fans stop working because a hair has gotten wound in them. If it still doesn't work properly after cleaning, then it will need to be replaced. Here's a link that has breakdown diagrams and instructions, this should help.
