My unit keeps saying Fan Failure and it seems it is fan B - is there any fix for this as the unit runs fine and when I upgraded to 10.2.4.1 the fan failure was not present having been intermittent. 

Regards, 

Rohan

I didn't quite understand this statement...

Nevertheless, the latest post says that you have two IFDs showing a fan failure?  I'm not aware of any common failures regarding fans being reported.  Sounds like a perfect job for tech support.  Have you contacted them?

I will download the data and send it to them Steve - thanks for coming back - yes I wondered if it was something you had come across a lot?

Depending on how old your 440's are, there was a problem with the design, and there is a fix for that.  Hopefully your units are still under warranty.  I had that problem and had to send mine in.  Apparently there is a clearance issue for the fan.  That is why it fails.
