I have some questions on the 6000 + 8vsb.


1) Does the 8vsb fan stay on all the time?

2) Is a load fan normal?


So far, the fan is on all the time. It never shuts off. That doesn't seem normal to me.


The fan is really loud. It doesn't sound smooth, it almost has a pepper grinder sound to it. Not so much that I rush over and shut it down, but enough for me to be concerned.


Ack!

Any new news on this topic? The oil trick may be worth a try. Exchanging the module via Dish Network sounds like a pain but may be worth a try. Removing the fan might be easiest but dangerous. Modifying the 8vsb enclosure or removing it and the fan?


Shame on Dish for not addressing this issue.

Dish 6000 or hot and noisy HD-100?

I removed the 6000 fan and shroud several months ago, no problems. Now I just got a 501 and the hard drive is always writing....NO.

I also removed the fan and metal cover several months ago. No problem with the summer heat. I would try getting a replacement from Dish first, and if that is loud, just remove it.
