How to repair a brushless laptop fan that doesn’t spin

How to repair a brushless laptop fan that doesn’t spin

So laptops fans are mostly brushless type fans. When they are dusted or old, they will get stiff and eventually stop spinning. In this video I explain how to fix that issue and how to properly clean the laptop fan with just basic stuff you have at your toilet 😀

    Thanks for this video. Thanks to it, I know how to remove the fan of the laptop cpu cooling fan. Berore I didn't know that just pulling out the propeller could remove the propeller.

    My laptop cpu fan is not working. after removing the propeller, dusting it off, adding oil, my fan is back up.

    Grease is not ideal – light oil like '3 in1' or 'sewing machine' oil is better.

    I have an Asus G50VT the fan stopped spinning and I can still push it easily. Guess it just died. I've been using a cooling pad but it's not enough to cool the video card. Overheating is a problem with this model from what others have said online. Manufacturers are using cheap parts so they don't have to pay much for warranty service. We end up eating it later with poor quality products.

    Thank you so much my man! Really helped me out here. Used IPA instead of water to clean the fans and some oil for lube. Works like a charm now!

    I had the same problem, exclusively with the GPU fan. Initially, I took it to a repair shop and he barely looked at the GPU fan before suggesting I need to change BOTH fans. I didn't trust him so I went to another shop, who suggested that he would clean the laptop which should fix the problem.

    So I paid the second shop but the problem was still here.

    This video was the actual solution. Now I am seriously starting to doubt these "professionals".

    How can I know if the fan is not working because of dirt or anything else? the fan doesnt feel stuck or hard or anything, but when my laptop is running the fan keeps moving like trying to spin and sometimes it spins a little but too slow and then it stops again and start moving like shaking

    There's resistance if I pull the blades. They'll break if I try to force it. Suggestions? The other end to access the bearing (beneath sticker) has a metal cap that doesn't just pop off so I'm not sure how else to get lubricant in there.

    Probably too late but: Asus R510J Fan started to make loud sounds for abour 2 weeks, didn't care much. Then games went really slow, Laptop was very very hot! Almost no Air coming out of the side of the laptop. Cleaned the fan from the outside with a vacuumer, got alot of dust out. Works a tiny bit better but Laptop still very very hot, fan doesn't spin the same amount (looking at graphs) and it just doesn't ventilate enough. Any ideas? Thanks<3

    Did not helped in my case for some reason. I have exact same fan on my HP laptop, I cleaned it well, used a bit of oil from Victorinox (swiss knifes manufacturer). When I power on laptop, fan just twitches and that’s it.
