RE: [DML] My personal experience with my fanzilla and a fan fix.



To whom it may concern,

Sorry about the incomplete sentence. I meant to say in the third
sentence....If a Fanzilla had been installed after the first meltdown this
problem would not have occurred again. The worst thing that would happen
with a high draw fan is a fuse would blow as it was designed to do long
before the fuse holder would be damaged. This event would trip the fan fail
light as intended and which stay on until the problem was fixed and a new
fuse installed. It's not rocket science just a good design executed with
quality materials and an expert doing all the assembly (Bobzilla himself).
That fact and the twelve year history of proven reliability allow me to go
to sleep at night comfortable in the knowledge that no DeLoreans are likely
to burn up due to the faulty design of a Zilla.  Sorry to Ron also that
there were none available when you wanted one. Fanzilla is the only fix,
whether it is a fused link or some type of controller, guaranteed not to
overheat in the most adverse conditions. I'll qualify that by saying that
Shain's new design is close enough in function and build quality to probably
be as reliable as FZ but only time will tell for sure. Now if we could just
think of a better name than the "Little grey box"! Does anyone have any
suggestions? Now be nice :).

DMC_5180, 
Please tell the whole story, what you failed to mention was the owner of the
Very well known Yellow car had a previous fire, yes fire in his car with the
factory un-fused jumper. The car ran fine apparently for years and then all
of a sudden it burned. Something caused it and my feeling is one of the fans
is drawing to much current due to age or an intermit short. 
I don't think the original problem was ever found . 
Then the Fan Fix was plugged in and one of the fuse holder melted. Yes, One
of the fuse holder could have melted due to a loose connection inside but I
told him to, to try to figure out which fan was drawing to much current.
Something is wrong in the circuit to have this happen twice and in my
opinion the problem hasn't gone away. It's just been masked over again.

Group,  

I'm not trying to jump on any band wagon here, I'm just giving my own
experiences.

A very recent experience at The Evansville autofest a month ago. The Owner
of a very 
familiar Yellow D was mentioning his car had been running hot during the
trip to the 
show. So, I asked him if his fans were working. He wasn't sure so I had him
turn the A/C 
on because that will force the fans to work. I did a quick check under the
front end and it 
appeared only one was working. So we opened up the relay compartment to see
if a fuse 
had blown. Well, not exactly, what we found was one of the fan fix fuse
holders had 
completely melted down including the fuse.
