    Replacing a Cooling Fan on VSE1100 and VSE2100 Devices

    The Virtual Services Engine has three cooling fans that are hot-swappable. Replace the fans after 5 years of accumulated use.

    Warning: To avoid injury, keep tools and your fingers away from the fans as you slide the fan tray out of the chassis.

    To replace a fan:

    1. Examine the rear of the chassis. Verify that the fan is not spinning.
    2. A cooling fan has a pull handle and a locking tab. Press the locking tab to the right while you pull out the fan using the handle. See Figure 1.
