Replacing fans in an Eaton UPS
If you receive the error code 132 in the event log indicating a fan fault, this is the procedure for replacing the fans and rectifying the fault.
You will need:
- Phillips screwdriver
- Torx screwdriver
- 2x standard 80mm 12v fans
- Wire cutters
- Zip ties
Watch the video below, or read on for the guide.
Step 1: Remove the 2 screws at the back of the case and carefully remove the cover.
Step 2: Remove the fan screws from the back of the unit
Step 3: Snip the zip ties holding the fan power cable and remove the power cable, remember the connector the fan was plugged into!
Step 4: Install the new fan, be sure to zip tie the power cable again.
Step 5: Now for the front fan, this one is more difficult as we have to remove the front covers first. The left front cover simply clips on.
Step 6: The right front cover has 2 Torx screws holding it in place, and a clip which is easier to detach from inside the unit. This is the most difficult part of the procedure.
Step 7: Now replace the fan in the same way we did before, again remember the location of the power connector. There is also a small transparent sheet with a small cut out to guide the power cable.
Step 8: Once the fan is installed, we re-attach the front panels in the reverse order we removed them.
Step 9: Reattach the top cover, remember the two screws on the back.
Step 10: Power on the device, wait for the self-test to complete and check that the lights match the picture below
This concludes the guide for replacing fans in an Eaton UPS.
