Install a Fan Module

Access this component directly from the front of the server. Use this procedure to install a replacement fan module or to install a fan module after accessing the CMODs behind it.

Before You Begin

  1. Align the fan module with the slot.

    Ensure the handle is positioned at the bottom of the slot with the green release button to the left and that the air vane for the slot swings freely.


    Caution  -  Component damage. Do not apply excessive force when sliding the fan module into the server. Ensure that the connector on the CMOD and the connector on the fan module are aligned correctly.

  2. To install the fan module, slide it into the slot until it stops and gently push it inward until the fan module locks into place.

    The locking action is accompanied by a click sound.
