I think I have a dead fan.

How can I tell if I have a dead fan? Also, how can I tell specifically which fan is dead. I'm certain one is gone because it gets pretty warm rather quickly. I just don't want to take the back panel off, turn it on, and run it upside down.

Thanks guys.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You use Apple Hardware Test, or 3rd party fan apps that report and can adjust fan speed/settings (SMC Fan Control, Temperature Monitor, Temperature Gauge) .
