Is it normal for center of a fan to heat up?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a few led fans, Raidmax, Have been using them for the past 3 years.. not too shabby but just noticed that one of them(the one I have as intake) center gets pretty hot even after about 5 minutes of use? I am not sure why, doesn't look like a lose connection..anything I should be worried about? should I take out the fan and re solider the joints or something?

sounds like a bearing issue to me.

find a replacement.. soon... the sleeve brgs are being torn up.. you may
be able to save it with a service of a drop of oil on the bearing and axle.
if you dont have any machine or motor oil, a drop of vegatable oil is fine.
