Is my fan broken in my MacBook Pro?
MY MBP is making some strange noises. Sometimes a screeching noise when turned on, sometimes a quiet ticking noise that goes on for 10 or so ticks then stops, then starts again (the ticking is very faint).
I suspected a broken fan and installed iStat which when the ticking noise occurred showed zero revs for the fan. Not good obviously!
Took it apart and the fan appeared to be OK; put it back together and all OK for few days, then it started again.
Before I order a replacement fan I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this and if replacing the fan fixed it?
And how hard was it to replace the fan?
Is this a good question?
