MacBook Air fans working non stop after replacement and liquid damage

Hello guys!

During the summer I have spilled some wine on my keyboard, and my Mac started working really slow, there was strange noises coming from it, some buttons were not working also.

I was living in Batumi,Georgia that time and I think I came to bad specialists, because in this city there no Macbook specialists at all. They replaced my keyboard, after it my fan was working very strange way, I had a feeling that it just broke down, also I noticed some beeps coming from my Mac.

I came to another specialist and he said that my fan is dead and we need to replace it.

After fan replacing I got rid of beeps, but fan is working NON STOP, on high speed, otherwise I don't have any temperature problems, I've checked it.

To summarise:

As I understand I have some SMC damage, I've tried to reset it, but it didn't help. Is there any chance to replace it somehow? Or fix it?

Thank you for reading it and your answers!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Well it does sound like your logic board got wet from your wine spill. The area often effected is around the SMC logic so you’ll need to find someone with Mac micro soldering skills as it’s likely the logic board will need repair.

Sadly there is no magic fix here.
