After many years of great use and which I still love my Drobo, I started getting some noisy feedback from the fan and thought it was time to replace. I Googled and found some info and videos on how to replace the fan to get things quiet again. I ended up purchasing the following fan replacement:/99
I had to cut the wires and use the original plug on the ADDA fan, as the one that came with the new fan was not the same size. I replaced the fan and got everything reconnected but what seems to happen, is the unit powers up and the fan runs, and at the point when all the drives are mounted, the fan stops and I start to hear a high pitched whiney electrical noise which I believe is coming from the fan. I am going to put the old fan back to double check but it seems like this noise is fan related.
Did I simply purchase an incompatible fan and hence the issue? If so, can anyone kindly recommend one I should use?
Thanks in advance all and Drobo on…!
