The fan is probably running at high speed because the Case or Processor are overheating (you didn't mention which fan it it) and that is what the fan is supposed to do, and setting it to rev. higher at a higher temp is only going to shorten the life of your unit.
Why not clean the dust from your heat syncs, boards, and fans? As dust is usually the culprit causing the high temperature in the first place, and is 10 to 20 times worse in a smoking environment.

Check your coolant levels. If the temperature isn't much higher than normal, you may be fine, or you may have a Coolant Temperature Sensor going bad, and reporting the incorrect temperature. Even though the thermostat was replaced 8 months ago, it is possible it is already going bad again. I believe this is more of a Coolant Temp. Sensor fault though. The cooling fans are On when the AC is on. With the AC off, the cooling fans come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature, and cut off once the temperature is back in range. The Coolant Temperature sensor shouldn't cost much, and is easy to replace. I would start with that, top it off with coolant, and then maybe change the thermostat.

My 2003 suburban seems to run at a higher rpm.


Hummm, 2000 rpm does not seem high, really. But another item to look at is your FAN. The clutch fan fails and drives the fan full engauge. Sounds like a jeep...massive sounding, relating to engine RPM, but not necessarily different.

I mentiont his because a trans does not typically fail and give a few hundred RPM. Usually a slipping sensation is described....

Check the condenser fan motor in the back, bottom of unit. pull off lower panel. Fan should be running when unit is running. Also check the condensor coils underneath or in back to make sure they are clear.

Will run for about 5 mins then fan will stop


It is OK for them to stop, a lot of cars get the fans going as a default, then once the computer checks everything, the engine temp is still low, the fans will shut off, and come back on when needed. Keep an eye on the temp gauge, and notice that the fans will come on when you stop at a light. Or city driving, they should never come on when cruising. And a lot of times they will run after you shut the car off. Just till the temp drops. Hope this helps.

Gateway 831GM Eratic Fan Noise


Hi,

This can be caused by several things:

1. Bad temp sensor
2. Bad voltage, but that will usually cause the whole system to restart
3. Too low maximum temp setting inside the chassis(setting is in bios), often denote as max case temp.

One way to bypass the problem is rig the fan to a molex adapter with a variable voltage molex to 2/3/4pin fan connector and adjust the speed to the maximum quiet setting.

The 831's did run a bit warm so if the case temp setting is set to low it will fluxuate quite a bit. Try adjusting the max case temp up around 50c just to see if that does it, if it does either use the variable voltage dial solution or add a second case fan that's always on, prefferably a low RPM running direct off molex so it will reduce the average temp and therby the need of the monitored case fan to rev up.
