    ok, I bought a new slot fan from ee-bay.... it worked for 1 night and then stipped... the guy won't respond so I left negative feedback... but I am thinking of fixing it myself... or "trying' and I can't get the FAN out... I can get to the fan... anyone have experience?

    It would be helpful if you let us know what brand and model you're dealing with. Also a picture of the little devil so that we can try to give you some ideas. :)

    Tip; use plumber's grease for lubricating fans, it's not petroleum based and therefor won't soften the plastic over time.
    It's available at hardware stores (home improvement type, not computer) for around $0.89 in a small tube.

    the guy won't respond so I left negative feedback
    How long did you give him to respond? Those fans cost him about 2$ (no matter what you paid) and 98% of ebay sellers would gladly send you a replacement instead of having you post negative feedback.

    But if you left him negative feedback before he could respond, he will say screw you and leave you negative feedback.

    A key to ebay is being patient.

    A fan will start to make some unusual noises when it's required. :D
