no year, engine (size) stated.
on all cars its the same,
gain access to it, (shrouds,etc, depands on how big your arms are.)
off the fan belt. (release tension-er.)
off the fan and clutch replace new clutch to old fan/.
set tension on belt.
the FSM steps for fan off are below (buy the FSM and read it?)
the fan is first then clutch.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the upper radiator shroud and, if desired for additional clearance, remove the radiator from the vehicle.
Although it is not necessary in most cases, the radiator may be removed from the vehicle for easier access to the fan
retainers. If the radiator is left in place, use extra caution to prevent damage to the fragile radiator fins.
Remove the fan assembly attaching nuts (clutch type) or bolts (standard type), then remove the fan assembly from the engine.
Some vehicles use a space between the fan and the water pump pulley. If used, be sure to retain the spacer for
If necessary, the clutch may be removed from the fan by removing the attaching nuts or bolts (as applicable).
Electrical issue.I would imagine you cleaned the cable connectors that you attach to the battery.With the lights blinking,that sounds like a starter issue,but since its new,try replacing the battery cables themselves,double check your wires to the starter,make sure they are tight.Good Luck ! Thank You !
Isolate mains.Remove oven cavity back panel (4/6 phillips or 4/6 Torx 20 screws)Remove fan blade (reverse thread nut)....this is sometimes where you come unstuck, because the blade just won't budge.If that happens I normally then remove the back panel of the unit itself (doesn't need to come all the way off, I will usually leave the mains connections on and let it fall back as far as it will go safely...may have to loosen the cable clamp to get some slack on the mains)You will now see the other side if the fan motor.Remove the L and N (not pole sensitive so they can go on the new one either way).Remove the 3 Torx20 screws holding the fan in position. (some models have an extra spacer ring so be careful you don't lose them)Go back to the cavity and use something to give the motor shaft a whack to release the fan blade, bearing in mind that if it does budge the motor itself is going to fall out the back (stick an old towel etc to cushion the fall and protect the terminal block etc).The new fan usually comes with the blade attached, separate the parts, install the motor, attached electrical connection and then the fan blade, make sure its tight. At this point I would close up the back and just hold in place with one screw and test that the fan works. (don't forget that the oven will not operate when the clock is flashing, so set any time on the clock before selecting circotherm)If everything looks ok, get it back together and in housing and run upto 150 or 200 degrees as a last test.Good luck, let me know how you get on or if you need any further clarification. Please post the outcome as this will assist other users of the site looking for solutions to similar problems.All the Best.
Look for the service manual for your laptop. It should show the routing of the cables. The antenna wires may have been disconnected for a screen replacement. Typ ant wires are black and white and should go back to the WLAN board in the correct location. If they don'r reach it may be incorrect routing or just the wrong cables. Try switching the main and secondary antenna cables if not sure which is which....... should not hurt anything if backwards, just poor range.
If the bearings have worn, there is not much hope for lubricating as the bearings are sealed in the motor. Look on ebay for a replacement. The fan is attached to the heatsink that is attached to the processor on the main board. A time consuming job.
Problem 1. Fan will not start. Probable Cause 1. Fuse or circuit breaker blown. 2. Loose power line connections to the fan, or loose wire connections in the switch housing. 3. Reversing switch in neutral position.
Suggested Remedy 1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers. 2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing. 3. Make sure reversing switch position is all the way to one side.
WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.
Problem 2. Fan sounds noisy. Probable Cause 1. Blades not attached to fan. 2. Loose screws in motor housing. 3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose. 4. Switch housing binding against the blade hub. 5. Wire connectors inside switch housing rattling. 6. Screws holding blades to flanges are loose.
Suggested Remedy 1. Attach blades to fan before operating. 2. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over-tight). 3. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan flanges to the motor hub are tight. 4. Check to make sure that the switch housing does not bind against the blade hub. 5. Check to make sure wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or against the interior wall of the witch housing. 6. Tighten screws securely.
WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.
Problem 3. Fan wobbles Probable Cause 1. Setscrew in motor coupling is loose. 2. Setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly is loose. 3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose. 4. Fan blade flanges not seated properly. 5. Hanger bracket and/or outlet box is not securely fastened. 6. Fan blades could be out of balance.
Suggested Remedy 1. Tighten the setscrew in the motor coupling. 2. Tighten the setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly. 3. Check to be sure screws which attach the fan blade to motor hub are tight. 4. Check to be sure the fan blade flanges seat firmly and uniformly to the surface of the motor hub. If flanges are seated incorrectly, loosen the flange screws and retighten. 5. Tighten the hanger bracket screws to the outlet box, and/or secure outlet box. 6. Interchanging an adjacent (side-by-side) blade pair can redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation.
WARNING: FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY TURN OFF POWER AT FUSE BOX OR CIRCUIT BREAKER BEFORE TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR FAN!!!
