Left Fan 000 rpm - disconnected or broken?
I installed CoreDuoTemp and learned that my MacBook is running at 80C with only a web browser running.
I then installed smcFanControl and saw that my left fan is running at 000 rpm. I'm assuming I have to open the machine to tell if it's disconnected or if I need to replace the whole thing? Is there any way to run a diagnostic before opening?
(The right fan is now set to run at a faster rpm and it's taking the temp down a bit)
Thanks in advance for your help.
I think that the only way to make a real chekc is to open the MacBook
here is the guide for the left fan
maybe you could feel the airflow on the back of the computer (in this case - the missing air flow on the left side) - but the only real way is to open it
