Should the fan spin on start up or only when the component are hot?
I received these error messages after running diagnostics:
There may be an issue with the fan.
Reference Code: PPF003
There may be an issue with the Thunderbolt hardware.
Disconnect external Thunderbolt devices and . If this message appears a second time, check “Ge started below”.
My iMac was restarting randomly and the whole metal body was hot to the touch which made me conclude that the fan was indeed not working. So I purchased the required tools to open the iMac and also bought a new fan (not from here as there were not in stock at the moment). I opened the iMac and replaced the old fan with the new one.
Now before putting on back the screen I wanted to see if the fan would spin with the screen off. I plugged in the power cable and powered on the iMac the chime sound played, however, the fan didn’t spin :(.
Hence I was looking for any assistance in helping me debug my issue. I was asking does the fan spin on startup or only when components get hot?
Questa è una buona domanda?
