Introduction

Similar to the main fan, the blower fan is essential in preventing the projector from overheating. Since projectors are prone to producing more heat than other electronic devices, the addition of this blower fan helps in maintaining a low temperature. This guide will show how to replace the blower fan, but it is also important to keep the fan clean from debris and particles that may potentially keep it from running smoothly.
