There are 4 fans on this unit. A Power Supply fan, a CPU fan, and two chassis fans. The chassis fans are 40mm with a 3 wire cable (with 100mm to 120mm cables ). Generic fans should work well. Cost is about $2, but shipping is $18! Look around. you might find some cheap on eBay ( OEM Replacement fans are $56 ). I just bought my LP1000r for $35.

Hi, Heat up is mainly due the clogged heat sink and fan etc, which requires
to be cleaned. It is strongly recommended that you clean the heat sink
etc yourself or seek help from authorized professional at the earliest to
avoid any damages to the PC. If
the system fan is not working properly, it may be due to dust inside
the fan. This
could be due to faulty fan or it may be stuck due to dust etc. In this
case, using a compress air for cleaning would be helpful. This will result in heating up of the system and the
processor/ graphic unit may burn. Try to clean the fan. You may use Compressed Air can to remove the dust etc. Cleaning and lubricating liquid available commercially can be used to smooth the inside rotating parts of the fa. Also, do check the fan power connection. Give it a try and try to make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement).
If you find it faulty, you may find and replace the fan by removing the
old/ faulty fan by removing the 4 screws and installing the new one.
Also, make sure that the PC is placed in a well ventilated environment and the air flow the the PC is correct. The
procedure is very simple and I believe immediate
action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH
This link will take you directly to the IBM support page with the PDF file containing the PSU configuration specs for the chassis you're asking about. It lists a NEMA L6-30 plug, and from the info I see on the sheet, it would appear to be a three-phase unit (based on US specs). Please understand, however, that you are on your own as to those determinations based on the documentation, and on the specific aspects of your unit.
As a first step, I would check to see if the power supply has become defective. There should be no foul smell comming from any part in your computer, so get in there and figure out which part is stinking up the place.
Other reasons for a computer not booting;
defective RAM or poor connection from RAM to motherboard
defective peripheral or poor connection from peripheral to motherboard
It sounds like an overheating problem. The newer cpu's have a thermal shutdown sensor that automatically shuts down system if it senses a temp that is too high. Common solution would be to check your cpu/ chassis fan and see if they are working. If not replace.
Of course they're still useful to someone. Sounds like i'd start with craigslist or ebay. Some of the servers will be heavy, so be sure to list that shipping from wherever you are to them is paid by the bidder. If you can, maybe you should try testing out the equipment to see if any of it works.
For example, Just the first entry sells new for 350, and used for about 175. You'll easily pick up 70-130 on ebay for these. In fact, I could use some of that equipment :-) Steven
I can't give you exact answers but I can tell you this: the torque required will vary with the thickness of the chassis material and its hardness. You also need to take into account what is being fixed to the chassis.
I'd suggest either contracting a suitable mech engineer for a day or doing a bit of trial and error: use a test chassis, drill a row of pilot holes, insert screw and torque down at a low setting; Increase torque for next one. When you find one that either damages what's being fixed down or strips the thread, back off a couple of steps and try 1/2 dozen more at that setting, just to be sure.
If the product is liable to be subject to vibration (including delivery, transport by purchaser, etc) then you'd need to check that the fasteners can cope with that as well.
The whole field of fastener torque is a minefield - try a Google search and you'll see what I mean!
1.Power down and remove power to the system. 2.Remove access panel. 3.Remove CPU fans and fan basket. 4.Pull the system tray out until it stops.
To remove the CD-ROM drive:
1.Disconnect the power and signal cables from the CD-ROM drive. 2.Loosen the thumbscrew located in the fan basket area to release the metal locking bracket. 3.Slide the metal locking bracket away from the center of the server. 4.Push the CD-ROM drive out of the front of the chassis from the interior of the system. 5.Pull the CD-ROM out and away from the chassis.
