Cooling fans - reliability
Posted on 2006-11-18
Good morning Experts,
Over the last 18 months our house has been very dusty - building works. The cooling fans in/on:
have all threatened to fail of have become noisy. To overcome the problems I have taken each of them apart, cleaned them out, oiled the bearing/spindle and re-assembled them. I have had to do this 4 times on the video chip fan (3.3cm dia).
So my question is:
How can I avoid having to do this and is there a way of either fitting more robust fans and/or filtering out the dust so that it doesn't get in, in the first place.
