"I am trying to find a solution to this problem as well. Do you still have access to the fan? I just had a few questions regarding the possibility of repairing it.

Are you able to remove the fan and the motor from the casing? If so, can you send me a picture of it? I was thinking about replacing the fan with its original casing."

8mm in height 7cm wide and 7cm long. the 'blades' of the fan are about 2.8cm long. the reason why i think it failed is because it started making some 'cruchy' nose when spinning at low speeds, then after 3 months is started making the whole laptop tremble when spinning at high speeds, (dont mind the cable, it got ripped when trying to remove the pin connector since it was glued in by gigabyte)

"If you can take some measurements of the fan, perhaps it would be possible for you to buy a replacement fan meant for another machine that has similar dimensions to yours and swap it in that way.

Usually the motor is permanently attached to the frame of the fan but you should be able to pull the blade assembly off. Perhaps what you can do, is find another fan with a similar blade size, that also has a metal plate backing, and perhaps cut the excess off the new one, cut the motor coil bit off the old metal plate, and somehow install the new metal plate onto the old one."

I face the same issue with the same laptop. I contacted the support. They quoted $45 for each fan. But here is the catch. They require to send the laptop to their repair center to change the fans and want $90 more for the labor. This is ridiculous. I am not sure why they are making themselves the enemy of the their customers.

I was able to replace both fans for under £15. If you want to wait for a shipment from China then the cost can be as low as £0.75 per fan. the method I used will require some soldering skills as some rewiring is needed. This is not the standard fan, but I managed to get it working rather well. Message me if you need a full guide
