6450-48 - replace fans

Good morning! We have a second hand Brocade ICX 6450-48 (non-PoE) switch, and I believe the fan may need to be replaced. Has anyone had experience replacing the fan? I'm trying to get this done on a budget, as the switch belongs to a public school and it would take a significant amount of time to approve budget for module replacement. A service manual would be ideal, though I doubt that kind of thing would be readily available to an end user.

Unfortunately service manuals are not available for these switches.  I do not believe the fan is available as a Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) either


You would need to open a T&M case with TAC if you do not have a valid support contract for these switches
