Replacing a Fan Tray
The services gateway has one fan tray that installs vertically
in the right rear of the chassis. The fan tray contains four fans (SRX 3400) or 10 fans (SRX 3600).
The fan tray is hot-removable and hot-insertable. It weighs about 4.2 lbs (1.9 kg) for the SRX 3400 or 6.2 lbs (2.8 kg) for the SRX 3600.
To prevent overheating, install the replacement fan tray immediately
after removing the existing fan tray.
To replace the fan tray:
- Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare
wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see Preventing
Electrostatic Discharge Damage.
- Turn the screw to the left on the fan tray
door. Open it to the right and remove it.
