Caution - Potential for system over-temperature and component damage. Do not attempt to operate the system with insufficient cooling. Maintain the integrity of a properly functioning cooling system by immediately replacing nonworking components and ensuring unobstructed airflow.
Note - The fan module is a hot-plug component.
An animation of the procedure to remove a fan module is available. See animation showing fan module removal.
Before You Begin
Caution - Server over-temperature condition. When a fan module is removed, the airflow vanes in the subassembly module automatically close to maintain the integrity of the server cooling system. Do not defeat the purpose of the airflow vanes.
