If the fan is located in the side or front of the computer, it should blow in. If it's located in the back, it blows outward.

The best way to orient your fans, if you have one if the front and one in the back, is to have the front fan drawing in the air, and the back fan blowing it out. This way you will draw in the cooler air from the outside, let it go across your components, and then the back fan will draw it back outside. This way the air will go across your motherboard faster. If you think about putting your hand outside when you are in the car, the faster you go, the cooler the air feels. Your power supply will already have a fan blowing hotter air out the back of your computer, so you don't want to draw in that hotter air and run it across your motherboard components as they will get even warmer.

Generally the purpose of a chassis fan on a desktop is to cool the machine. If there was only one fan it should be blowing out. If you have 2 fans then at least one should be blowing out.

(Assuming that the second fan that is blowing in is not allowing dust into the chassis of the computer.)

Hope this helps

Old 30 + year old trane. Fan in front. Coils in back. Should the fan be spinning clockwise or counte? I assume it blows air out the front, pulling air pass the coils. Also have to push fan to start. Assume...

It should pull through the coil and blow out the front. The best way to find out is look at the coil. Is there dirt on the inside of the coil or the outside? If there is dirt on the inside, it tells you its been blowing through the coil. If there is dirt outside the coil it tells you its been pulling through the coil. Generally, pulling through the coil gives more square inches of air passage across the coil. Hope this helps.

Warm air

could be several things...if all is working/blowing and its clean inside & outside with a clean filter then more then likely it's low on gas/freon......if you continoue to run it it'll pobly ice up/freeze......also make sure you hear the compressor running as well as the fan blowing. sometimes this can be tough listen for that deep rumble/humming sound thats the compressor.

Fan over works or slows down and stops completely, i am not pc friendly,still new to this,

Disconnect all cables from the PC and take it outside. Remove the side panel. Blow all the dust from the unit with compressed air. Pay special attention to the cooling fans and the heat sink on the processor. Do not touch any components inside the PC without first touching the outside of the case to discharge any static electricity. Check to make sure the fan on the processor is securely in place. This should solve the problem. You need to do this every 6 months.

The A-Coil is pluged up. you need some foamagator. it will foam up and clean your coils. don't forget to clean the outside coils also. but the one that is stopping the air from blowing is inside by the furnace. Hope this was helpfull

House HVAC Not Blowing

If the outside unit is running and the inside unit is not, probably a problem with the fan motor itself or its capacitor. If you have to have someone repair or replace the fan $200-$250 with parts, a capacitor for a service call and part $100 or so. Check it yourself first to see if there is anything obvious broken wire, hot connection, etc if you feel safe doing that. Turn the power off first. There is also a chance the thermostat could be the problem. Have you tried running the fan on the thermostat "fan on" setting?
