7500T fan not working
« on: February 15, 2016, 10:08:40 PM »
I happened to touch the top of my 7500T on the weekend and noticed it was quite hot. I could see the fan was not working, but the fan itself is okay because I unplugged it and applied 12V and it spun. Is the fan meant to be on all the time when the unit is powered up? If so, I'm guessing something on the main board is not turning it on. Apart from that everything seems to be working okay. Any thoughts?

I ended up connecting the fan to the 12V supply for the hard drive. That means the fan will be running while the hard drive is running. Since the fan is there mainly to cool the hard drive that seems a logical thing to do. At least the fan is working now and should help the box to stay cooler.
