Where can I buy a replacement Fan in NZ?

 

It is available on Amazon though.

 

Its a 70mm 12V , 0.13A COFAN fan.  Most computer shops have the common 80mm fans

 

 

 

My TIVO fan is very noisy and its of an erratic nature ie:  with some quite periods.

 

I  have:

 

     

  1. Taken it out and cleaned the dust off.
  2. Put some some silicon oil in the bearing and ran it for for a while with the sticker side facing down so that oil penetrates and is spread evenly.
  3. Put it back and it is very quiet.

 

But I believe this will be for a short period before I need a new fan.

Highly recommended.
I've ordered from them three times before.
Quick and reliable.

 

I often visit their site because I hate noisy PCs  smile
