ASI1600MM Fan not Working (Spiders)

Recommended Posts

Another cautionary tale.....   Last night at  around midnight I noticed that my ASI1600MM's fan had decided that it no longer wanted to rotate and that the camera wouldn't hold temperature..    This morning I read Julian's thread,  took the camera off to have a look and saw that the fan was covered in muck and spiders web!  So removed the three screws holding the back plate on, took the plate off (it comes off with the fan attached to the inside), cleaned the fan and it is now working fine. Just shows how strong spiders web is..
