rp2430 remind fan failure,could not fix after replacing fan assembly.

guys,
I've got an rp2430 panic, os reminded that there was fan failing, and ps at GSP> told fan 1 was in failure status, then after about 1 minute, the server power off itself. Then I cut off the power and then power on the server again, everything was ok and the os could boot, then after several minutes, it failed again, telling fan 1 failure again. Then I replace fan assembly, the same situation happened again.

what could be the cause of this issue? It seemed that fan was not failed in fact, would it be caused by the system board?

attachment were shortcut of the screen when the failure happened.

thanks a lot!

The fan in question is the power supply fan assembly, the power monitor itself is on the system board.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

This should be straight forward.

If the system goes off, what is the GSP's "ps" command telling?

Hope this helps!
