My Problem

The MacBook worked OK until anything like streaming a video shut it down.

It was obvious that overheating caused the temperature sensor to shut it down.

And there was no sound of the fan, so I ordered the fan to repair it.

My Fix

The repair went easily since I had been familiar with MacBook computers in the past.

The job took 2 hours with no problems.

In future, I'll take some pitches to share with others in the iFixit community.

My Advice

Given the curiously to watch people working on anything like cars & equipment of course lead me to tear into things myself. While I worked on almost everything else, computers have only been in recent 20 years.

When I discovered iFixit, the step by step guides were the invaluable tool for the repair.

So if one has the "do it yourself" motive, sharing information with others is essential.

My Problem

starting to fix some old favorite MacBooks around the house

My Fix

first iFixit project: replaced a fan in a 2006 MacBook 1,1 and a dead battery in the same 2006 MacBook. now i feel like i'm ready to learn how to replace the display. and upgrade the 350GB HD to 5400rpm or 7200rpm or 10000rpm 2TB HD or SSHD or SSD. still not electronically sure about what an 85W power cord charger will do that a 60W power cord charger will not do to a 2006 MacBook 1,1

Prendre sont temps et avoir les bon outils

My Problem

For over a year, my 2007 MacBook has been overheating and displaying a black screen with a bunch of mumbo jumbo text, and all I could do was force shut down. It would not last a second trying to watch a youtube video. I found this site and the videos made it seem so easy to repair a fan. Since it was so cheap, I thought I'd give it a try. Fixing my own computer never crossed my mind. But I had nothing to lose, really.

My Fix

I followed the photo guide posted with the part on this site. I followed it to the T. There was a little hesitation prying the keyboard ribbon, but I looked over to another video to find exactly which direction i needed to shove the spudger. It was easy-peasy, my computer doesnt shut down anymore. It still gets pretty warm. It's a whole new world, and I am ready to replace another part, on another computer, as long as I have the guide and the tools from ifixit. It's really been empowering. Just don't ask me to write up a software program.

My Advice

Definitely buy all the parts or tools that are suggested on the site. It's a really great guide. I had the image tutorial up and the video tutorial (on how to open up the computer). Both were useful.

My Problem

the fan was broken, very noisy like a lawn mower.

My Fix

i followed the guide : MacBook Core 2 Duo Fan Replacement.

Pretty easy, execpt the last part with the black felt tape, careful !

My Advice

be careful with the black felt tape and take your time.

My Problem

2007 MacBook (original) fan was getting noisy and I was afraid of fan failure

My Fix

The repair went GREAT! Instructions were easy to follow, and though I was a bit nervous about opening my laptop I even got it all back together without any screws still in hand.

The new fan fan works flawlessly and my MacBook is humming along quietly now.

My Advice

From each step of the instructions I put the set of screws in a small paper cup, so as not to mix up the screws and how they should be put back. It worked out well for me.

My Problem

I have an old MacBook that lives in my server closet that provides three AppleTVs and all of our various iDevices with Video/Music. The fan was on its last leg and sounded like a monster was trying to escape the laptop with a hammer.

My Fix

Repair went flawlessly thanks to the great directions on iFixit.

My Advice

Nope, follow the guide, smooth sailing.

My Problem

Der Cooler wurde zuerst nur laut, dann war das Geräusch zu Lärm geworden. Ein Austauschdes des Coolers, nach 7 Jahren Lebensdauer war notwendig.

My Fix

Die Anleitung von iFixit machte die Arbeit sehr leicht. Nach einer knappen Stunde war alles erledigt und funktionierte. Nur die Tastatur wollte nicht mehr. Erneutes Öffnen entsprechend Anleitung um zu kontrollieren ob der Stecker richtig plaziert ist. alles o.k. - Zusammenbau - Auch der Ein/Auschalter funktioniert nicht mehr.Erneut Öffnen und dieses mal auch eines anderen MacBook um die Tastatur des anderen zum Einschalten zu benutzen. Jetzt benutze ich eine alte USB-Tastatur, nur kann man mit dieser das Macbook nicht einschalten also darf ich niemals abschalten.

My Advice

Um die vielen kleinen Schrauben in der richtigen Reihenfolge für die Montage aufzubewahren, habe ich sie auf einem Klebeband (Tesafilm) abgelegt.

My Problem

While my computer is computing, my fan must excel at life itself. From the perspective of fan-life. It must be fresh, cool, and clean. Much like said fan's cooperative new owner. We be chillin' now that we so fresh and so clean, clean.

My Fix

I used a multitude of ingenuity while following step-by-step DIY.

My Advice

During rebuild I noticed you'r site instructs the battery elbow cover having three screws. (2) are the same size, and (1) is larger. The order of these screws was different on my unit, than on the pics provided with how-to. The site said the larger of the three screws goes in the middle, that was incorrect. My larger of the three screws went near the battery outlet, not the center. This caused much grief, and almost lead to my demise. However, through the greatness of my micro-tool. I prevailed.

My Problem

My 2006 MacBook is still running strong and I'm planning on making our ten-year anniversary together, but in the last several years the fan has gradually become noisier. It ran as soon as I opened the laptop, and after downloading iStat Menus I found the fan wasn't even running high rpms, just noisy at normal (1000-2000) rpms. It also wasn't really doing its job, since my computer was more frequently becoming so overheated it demanded I shut it down for self-preservation. Techier friends who bought MacBooks at the same time reported similar problems and said it wasn't worth fixing, so they bought new computers and I just tolerated the roaring. People pay for white noise, right?

My Fix

The iFixit guide was wonderful. Two of the screws gave me trouble because I first tried to improvise a #00 screwdriver (don't do that). I also improvised a spludger with a wooden shish kebab skewer, which worked but probably wasn't ideal. Like other reviewers I found it impossible to remove the fan without ripping the black felt tape, and made do with some electrical tape that has worked fine so far. The silver tape also didn't really have any stickiness left, and I'm sure it would be better if I'd used new tape or glue, but I just put it back in position and it's worked fine.

End result: silence. Amazing. Take that, techy friends!

My Advice

If you have a noisy fan, as so many older MacBooks seem to, try this! My first plan was to take the fan out, take it apart, and try to clean it and oil the axle/shaft on the advice of an article on another website, but that advice is not applicable to this model (MacBook duo core A1181). The fan can't be taken apart without breaking it, and even once you've broken it you still don't really have an axle available to oil. Also, I was worried about sticking my fingers into the computer to insert the new fan (I heard pros use a static bracelet to prevent creating electric shorts), but it all seems to have worked fine. Inspired, I also bought a new battery ($12 off of Amazon, sorry iFixit, but it beat $99), and now my computer runs good as new.
