Replacing a Fan Module (for 18000 V5/18000F V5 Series)

Replacing a Fan Module (for 18000 V5/18000F V5 Series)

This section describes how to replace a fan module.

Impact on the System

During the replacement of a fan module, the system's heat dissipation is affected and the system temperature increases. If the controller reaches the self-protection threshold (97°C CPU), the controller is automatically powered off, degrading the system reliability.


  • The spare part of the fan module is ready.
  • The fan module that you want to replace has been located.

You can locate a component in either of the following ways:

  • Log in to DeviceManager, and go to the System page. On the System page, check the device view and locate the position of the component to be replaced. If the component has a location indicator, turn on the indicator. (For details about how to turn on a location indicator, see the online help of DeviceManager.)
  • Use the alarm indicator of the component to locate its component.


  • Do not touch rotating fan blades.
  • Remove and insert a fan module with even force. Excessive force may damage the connectors or appearance of the fan module.
  • A fan module must be replaced within five minutes. Otherwise, the system heat dissipation is compromised.
  • To avoid the sharp increase of the system temperature, replace the faulty fan. To replace a rotating fan, use the SmartKit.

Tools and Materials

  • ESD wrist strap
  • ESD bag
  • Labels


  1. Perform a pre-replacement check.

    Check whether there is a redundant fan module and whether the Running/Alarm indicator of the fan module is steady green, as shown in Figure 5-82. For details about the indicators on different components, see Running/Alarm Indicators on a 6 U Controller Enclosure.
    Figure 5-82 Running/Alarm indicator on a fan module

    You can perform replacement only when a redundant fan module exists and the redundant fan module is working properly.

  2. Wear an ESD wrist strap.
  3. Remove a fan module, as shown in Figure 5-83.

    1. Press the latch on the panel to open the panel.
    2. Press the latches on the fan module to pull out the fan module.
    Figure 5-83 Removing a fan module

  4. Put the removed fan module into an ESD bag.
  5. Take the replacement fan module out of its ESD bag.
  6. Insert the replacement fan module into the empty slot until it clicks into place, as shown in Figure 5-84.

  7. Wait about two minutes and check the status of the Running/Alarm indicator on the fan module to determine whether the fan module is successfully installed. Figure 5-85 shows the location of the Running/Alarm indicator.

    • If the indicator is steady green, the fan module is successfully installed.
    • If the indicator is steady red or off, the newly installed fan module is faulty, the fan module slot is faulty, or the fan module is incorrectly installed.

  8. If the fan module is successfully installed, close the panel, as shown in Figure 5-86.

  9. Confirm the replacement.

    After the preceding procedure is complete, check services on the host for any storage-related error. If any storage-related error is reported, contact Huawei technical support.

Follow-up Procedure

After the fan module is replaced, label it to facilitate subsequent operations.
