Re: [DML] one fan running backwards?



Well, actually there could be more to it.

I recall Dave Swingle had an issue like this. It turned out that a PO had 
replaced the fan motor with one that looked like a good replacement except 
that it turned the reverse of the factory fan! While it would turn the right 
direction if you simply reversed the wiring that would leave the case of the 
fan motor electrically "hot" in stead of neutral. That would not cause a 
problem normally, but if something that is grounded accidentally touches the 
fan motor case sparks will fly. That would not happen with the correct fan 
installed the correct way.
