My Problem

Laptop had was making an awful racquet and determined that the left fan got out of balance.

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly. We found a Youtube video that showed all the hidden screw locations and special tools required. We easily took the laptop apart, installed the new fan, put it back together, and its back up an running without any problems.

My Advice

Being a "do it yourself" repair person involves taking a few chances, but it is worth it in the end! My family nicknamed me "Mr. Fixit" and bought me the t-shirt.

My Problem

Noise from the left fan

My Fix

Smooth ;-)

My Advice

Sooo easy ;-)

My Problem

On my 17in Macbook Pro, I started having a lot of noise coming directly from my left fan. So I removed the left fan and made sure it was lubricated properly and then reinstalled. Unfortunately, this fix was only temporary...the fan quit working within a week.

My Fix

So I jumped on ifixit.com to order the part from them. Their shipping is fast and their guides are simply priceless!!

This is actually a fairly easy guide, the tricky/careful parts for me were when I was working with the iSight camera connection on the mother board, and the heat tape on the fan itself. Once I was past those issues the rest of the repair was pretty simple.

My Advice

Don't do this repair twice, if your fan is making crazy weird/loud noises just go to iFix-it and order a new fan. That way you don't have to fix it and then turn around a week and change...again.

My Problem

My old fan was so noisy it made working on my mac almost unbearable. A constant brbrbrbbrbrbrbrbbrb... It was time to start shopping for a new mac book or try and fix it. I'm so lucky I found ifixit.com!

My Fix

The repair was easy. I mean really easy - com'on it's just a couple of screws here and a piece of tape there. Pulling apart a computer seems like a big deal but with the repair guide loaded full of pictures to help it was not a problem.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to disassemble anything. Just take your time and don't lose anything. It's well worth it to do it yourself and it's easier than you think!

My Problem

The fan sounded like a Tardis and the laptop would overheat and ruin the battery.

My Fix

The repair went very well, thanks to clear instructions. I was even able to work on my giant space alien head the same evening.

My Advice

I'm not sure my laptop is as good as new. Is something causing the laptop to overheat, pushing my fans into overdrive and an early death? I would like to know if there's something I can do to make sure I'm not only treating the symptoms, but fixing the cause.
