Fixing NOISY/Sticky Case Fans

Fixing NOISY/Sticky Case Fans

When a case fan starts making strange noises or starts slowing down, people tend to throw them away. Why waste a $15.00 panaflo fan?! This mod will teach to how to fix those stiff fans to help you save money! This takes a couple of minutes at the most and can in NO way hurt your computer.

Materials

-Phillips Head Scredriver (+)
-White Lightning or Other Lube


On the backside of the fan, there SHOULD be a rounded sticker somewhat like the one pictured above. Remove this sticker, and try not to touch the adhesive, because you will need to use this sticker again when you are finished.


You should now see a short ?pin? sticking up inside the remaining hole. This is what needs to be lubed.


Just grab your White Lightning or whatever other lube you have laying around the house and spray about 2 drops inside the hole (More does NOT mean better in this mod). Spin the fan a couple of times to make sure the lube is seeping in and then spray about 1 or 2 more drops in to replenish the excess. Now throw the sticker back on the back of that fan to cover the hole (to keep from spilling the lube all over) and you are good to go!

This mod is VERY simple, but VERY effective! I have used this multiple times. Many people tend to see a stiff/noisy fan and just throw it out, but you can save money with this mod! Use this, but don?t OVER-lube the fans. Have fun, and happy modding!
