Advertisements Well, our SIL and daughter bumped their heads or something. We gave them a Roamio OTA several Christmas's ago and just recently he and my daughter *went back to satellite*. I know I raised her better than that, but... <chuckle> Anyhow, they asked us if we wanted the Roamio...well, duhhh, sure!!! Their Roamio, though had a loud fan on it and I had intended to replace a good while back but never got around to it. So, today I took it apart and replaced the fan...leaving the screws out of the fan's bottom mounting holes (for an even easier replacement in the future, if needed). I got everything back together and the Roamio seems to be running and and is very quiet now. Checking the MBT after the system had been running for a short period of time shows 30C. Unfortunately I didn't check prior to swapping the fans out. I used the Evercool 35mm x 10mm 12 Volt Everlube Bearing Fan w/2 Pin 7mm Connector EC3510H12E Tivo Roamio . I bought it back in January 2020...price was $11.99 then, looks like $12.95 now. It was a straightforward replacement. No problems. The connector went on just like the original one. The fan is a seven-blade model whereas the OE fan was a five-blade. I was watching the Week Knees video and noticed that the Roamio OTA did not have the cable card holder in it. Other than that it all looked the same as in the video. We gave my daughter and SIL the Roamio for a Christmas present in 2018. I'm guessing the fan started making a noise in November or December of 2019. So, the OE fan basically lasted a year before starting having problems. It will be interesting to see how long this fan goes before getting noisy. The label on the Evercool states that it has "EL Bearings". Reading the blurb on Amazon about it it states that the fan has "Fluid dynamic bearings" and that they will last longer than sleeve or ball-bearing fans. We will see. Anyhow, just wanted to share this small project. If you're the least bit good at tinkering with things don't hesitate to do this fix. It really is simple. As long as the plug works with no issues then it is just a simple parts swap-out. If the plug is different on the fan you use for the replacement then you might have to do some wire-splicing but that's no biggie. Now we have a Roamio OTA in the kitchen, too!
