Replacing an MX960 Fan Tray

 

Removing an MX960 Fan Tray

Note

To prevent overheating, install the replacement fan tray immediately after removing the existing fan tray.

To remove the upper or lower fan tray (see Figure 1 and Figure 2):

  1. Attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Reposition the standard cable manager before removing the lower front fan tray:Note

    This step is not required for the extended cable manager.

    1. Unwrap any cables on the standard cable manager and remove the cables from the tray. Arrange the cables so that they do not block the front of the cable manager and tray, and secure them with temporary fasteners so that they are not supporting their own weight as they hang from the connector.
    2. Simultaneously pull the two releases labelled PULL on the cable manager. Lift it up and outward to lock it in place.
  3. Loosen the captive screw on each side of the fan tray faceplate.
  4. Grasp both sides of the fan tray, and pull it out approximately 1 to 3 inches.Warning

    To avoid injury, keep tools and your fingers away from the fans as you slide the fan module out of the chassis. The fans might still be spinning.

  5. Pause for approximately 15 seconds to allow the fans to stop spinning.
  6. When the fans stop spinning, press on the two latches located on the inside of the fan tray.
  7. Place one hand under the fan tray to support it, and pull the fan tray completely out of the chassis.
