My Fan Won't Shut Up!
I followed the guide over here:
MacBook Air 11" Mid 2011 Upper Case Replacement
and replaced my keyboard for my 2011 macbook air 11". Everything is working great except for one blatant issue. The fan is constantly on full blast, even when there's nothing open and it's cooled down. It seems like the mechanism for detecting when the fan needs to come on, and at what speed, stopped working.
I must have botched something up at some point. I just can't figure out what. I opened it up again to make sure I reinstalled everything correctly and there aren't any loose connections anywhere.
Has anybody had this issue? What can I do to troubleshoot? I've been dealing with this for about 10 months now...lol I really need to get this figured out soon because I'll be selling it.
Questa è una buona domanda?
Can you take a good hires picture of the fan cable connector?
Holy crap....I've inspected & readjusted the fan cable numerous times in the past, but all of a sudden it made a difference because it's working perfectly now! That cable placement is pretty finicky apparently. This time I made extra sure that the little white line on the ribbon was lined up with the edge, and pushed in very snug.
!@#$, I wish I knew it was such a simple fix this whole time...lol
Yes it can be tricky ;-}
