Inleiding

This guide shows the process of how to replace the fan of the Dell XPS 15 9575.

Both fans on this device have covers that are integrated into the interconnect cable, so its removal will be necessary for the fan replacement. However, Step 5 of the guide details removing the pin connectors for this cable, and their removal isn’t necessary for a quick fan swap.

The fans are responsible for offsetting the heat produced by processing units of the laptop. This means it should be relatively easy to diagnose problems with the fans, as the device will produce excessive heat as a result. If your device is producing noticeably excessive heat on a regular basis, you should replace the fan sooner rather than later, as heat in excess has the potential to damage the components that produce it. A faulty fan could also be responsible for excessive noise, and users may choose to replace such a fan to reduce noise even if heat is not experienced.
