Title: DNS ShareCenter - My ShareCenter Fan is Noisy - Fan Maintenance and Cleaning
Post by: JavaLawyer on August 21, 2013, 02:12:54 PM
If your ShareCenter fan seems to have gotten noisier than it used to be and there were no significant changes to your ShareCenter, the internal fan(s) may require cleaning. Dirt/dust build-up on the fan blades can cause an imbalance, resulting in more noise than usual.  The build-up of dirt and debris on the fan blades also increases the overall weight of the fan blades, causing the motor to work harder and spin slower, which can impact the ability to cool the ShareCenter and reduce the life of the fan.
