Cpu fan spins for a second then stops repeat

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
One of the cpu fans on my hyper 212+ spins for a second, stops then spins again stop repeat. The pc seems to be working fine and all the other fans in my case are working fine including the 120mm fan on the other side of my heatsink. I am wondering if this is a problem with the fan or maybe its not getting enough power or something. Core temps seem to be at 30. I have not changed anything and it was working fine before I came home today.

Now its spinning really slowly but not stopping and starting as it did before

Try plugging a different fan in to be sure.

I just took out the fan tugged on it a little and now its spinning albeit slow, is there anyway to grease it up as I figure that is the problem or should I just get a new fan?
