Installing a Fan Module in an EX4300 Switch

Each fan module is a hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable unit (FRU) installed in the rear panel of the switch: You can remove and replace it without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.

Caution: Do not mix:

  • Fan modules with different airflow labels (AIR IN (AFI) and AIR OUT (AFO)) in the same chassis.
  • Power supplies with different airflow labels (AIR IN (AFI) and AIR OUT (AFO)) in the same chassis.
  • Power supplies and fan modules with different airflow labels (AIR IN (AFI) and AIR OUT (AFO)) in the same chassis.
  • AC and DC power supplies in the same chassis.

Before you install a fan module in the switch:

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to install a fan module in the switch chassis:

  • ESD grounding strap
  • Phillips (+) screwdriver, number 2

Note: The fan module slots are at the left end of the rear panel on 24-port and 48-port switches, and at the right end on 32-port switches. Figure 51 shows how to install a fan module in 24- port or 48-port switches. The procedure is the same for 32-port switches.

  1. Ensure that you have the correct fan module. The label AIR IN (AFI) or AIR OUT (AFO) on the fan module must match the label AIR IN (AFI) or AIR OUT (AFO) on the installed power supply.
  2. Attach the ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to the ESD point on the chassis.
  3. Remove the fan module from its bag.
  4. Hold the handle of the fan module with one hand and support the weight of the module with the other hand. Place the fan module in the fan module slot on the rear panel of the switch and slide it in until it is fully seated.
  5. Tighten the captive screws on the faceplate of the fan module by using your fingers. If you are unable to tighten the captive screws by using your fingers, use the screwdriver.

Note: If you have a Juniper J-Care service contract, register any addition, change, or upgrade of hardware components at https://www.juniper.net/customers/csc/management/updateinstallbase.jsp . Failure to do so can result in significant delays if you need replacement parts. This note applies if you change the type of power supply or add a new type of uplink module. It does not apply if you replace these components with the same type of component.
