We've begun to see a trend in the shop with 15 inch MacBook Pro owners having their fans fail on them or become extremely loud. One customer sent in a unit with a fan that was so loud it could be heard 2 rooms away.

So my question is, how many of you out there are having similar problems. We'd like to get a general feeling of about how many of you are experiencing these issues.

i had a problem with my left fan , well , it didnt work at all , so switched only the inside of the fan , wich fixed the problem but then my right fan started to be really really loud , i could hear through a closed door , anyway , now both the fans are working but when i use my computer too roughly the right fan starts doing its music again ,

so im probably going to buy a new fan from here , but i live in holland right now so ill keep searching over here and if i don't find ill just order one

I've got a MBP core duo with fans acting up. The left one sometimes gets so worked up that it sounds like a buzzsaw! It's a very frightening sound.

It is an extremely common issue. We sell replacements at our online store.

I've been having a different problem with my fans... they don't spin up enough. When editing in Motion or Final Cut, I have to turn the fans up. If I don't, then the temp shoots up and the computer shuts off. I thought it might be something to do with the temp sensors not working, but it still reports temps fine - I'll wonder why things are starting to slow down and then see that the fans are going 2000rpm with the temp at 170. Any ideas what I can do to fix this?

Oh, this also regularly leads to artifacts on my screen (due to my video card over heating, I expect?) - normally single-pixel tall horizontal lines of noise across applications opened while overheated, but now it is turning into a pink gradient... please tell me there is stuff I can do here!

I recently began having this problem with a Macbook Pro I've had for two years. The fans have gotten really loud. Especially annoying since I like to watch movies on my laptop.
