Can I replace Dell laptop cooling fan with any other fan?

Im trying to get this Dell Inspiron 1300 working again. The fan is dead and getting a new or used seem hard. So I end up with an idea to take another fan from Lenovo. Cut the edges with a saw and fitted it. They both three cables fans. Just colours differ.

After assembling it back I can’t get this fan to work. It spins for a two seconds and stops. Any ideas that might help? Or maybe i’ve just damaged this fan with a saw.

Hi @lost_in_spice ,

Are the specifications on the replacement fan the same as for the original? According to this link it is a 5V 1.8W fan. The specifications should be marked on the centre of the fan

If the specifications are the same then perhaps the sensor in the fan (not sure if it is a rpm sensor or temp sensor) or sensor lead (yellow wire) is faulty

There are some fans online. Just search for Dell Inspiron 1300 fan or MD538. Here’s just one

Well. Didn't think about that. Fan I took out from Dell didn't had a sticker.

So I'm assuming I need a fan with 0.36A. the one I've installed is 0.5A so that's why it's not working. I've noticed there are some fans for dell. But either in US or China and I don't want to pay 30 quids or wait two months. Upcycling to its best. Thanks for help!
