I noticed this morning that my 5D fan is making a rhythmic grinding noise. I’ve checked all of the drives and isolated it to the rear of the machine. It’s outputting very little air movement in the back. I turned the Drobo off for a while, rebooted it, and the noise came back after a couple of minutes.
I bought the 5D back in 2012 so I’m far outside of warranty. It’s an important tool in my business so I need to get it fixed. Any suggestions? I imagine Drobo support will be very expensive, is this something I can fix myself?
Edit: I also can’t get the Drobo support portal to let me enter a support request. It keeps giving me a login error page.
