Oil Yate Loon d14bh-12 to fix noise?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My psu's yate loon fan has begun making awful loud noise compared to the rest of my system and I have the belief that the bearing is going out. Being a 2 ball bearing, does oiling it matter, and if so, I have Blue Juice valve oil on hand, would that work? Amazon Link to oil I apologize if this is the wrong forum.

Oiling Ball Bearing fans make the noise even worse, I've done the same to the original fan in my PSU and it just squeaked louder.

A new fan is probably necessary. So in that ange of looking at the problem at hand - it won't hurt to try oil it a little. If this fix the problem (unlikely, because the bearings are probably busted and / or the fan is out of the ballance), then no new fan is need. If it does not fix the problem, then the solution is still the same - new fan.

BTW, a little drop of oil per year should be standard way to look out for your fans wink.gif This time is, IMHO, too late. I would be delighted to hear that I was wrong on this one tongue.gif

Alright. Will the blue juice work for a faithful attempt? If it fails, what fan should I get, considering the D14BH is so damn hard to find. I have a genuine globe fan that is used in the PC Power and Silencer MK III on my eBay watchlist, I think it'll work.

I'd give it a try, one or two drops of oil should do it.
I remember my d12sm-12's needed to be oiled every 2 months (When mounted with the air blowing vertically) or they would start grinding like hell.

The bearings should come out. I would take them out and clean them off and see if you feel them being gritty when you spin them. If so soak them in a degreaser Then air dry then soak in very light machine oil or roller skate oil then leave them on a paper towel to let excess drain and you should be good to go. Lots of times the old lube hardens in them causing noise my deltas have this happen and I have to do this every 6-10months.

Ouch, that price! The genuine globe one is $10! Anyways, I'm gonna give the oiling a shot first, then if that doesn't help, I will try Mopar's cleaning idea then if none of that succeeds, I will replace the fan. I just hope this is not indicative of the PSU's remaining lifetime!

Fingers crossed! Report back, please. The idea about complete cleaning is IMHO interesting.
However I fear, that the bearings are just gone for good... but I always see the worser possibility first. So... good luck!

Just oiled the fan (Using hair clipper oil, pretty similar to sewing machine oil) and the noise has persisted. The noise has actually worsened since previously and I have it on blurrycam vidya.
