Fan Test/Self Clean PlayStation 3 (Original and Slim)

    • NOTE: The candle is only behind the PS3 for demonstration purposes. DO NOT put open flames next to your console. The video could only be 30 seconds so I already had my system unplugged when I started recording in order to get the video under the time restraint.

    • First, make sure your disc drive is empty.

    • (PS3 Fat Only) Turn your PS3 from standby to off by flipping the switch on the back of the system, hold down the eject button and then flip the switch back on.

    • (PS3 Slim Only) Unplug the power cable from the system, hold down the eject button and then plug the cable back in.

    • Your system will turn on and within a matter of seconds you will hear the fan inside the PS3 begin to spin at a much higher rate than normal. It should run for about 15-20 seconds. In this demonstration the fans run for 16.96 seconds.

    • When complete, the power (red) light will blink (PS3 Fat) or be completely off (PS3 Slim)

    • (PS3 Fat Only) Hit the switch on the back of your system to off and back to standby. You're done!

    • (PS3 Slim) Unplug your power cord and then plug it back in. You're done!

    • NOTE: If you do not power down/unplug the system after the fan stops spinning the system WON'T turn on. System MUST be reset. HAPPY GAMING!


Perform this test every 1-2 months to keep your PS3 clean of debris which will help ensure the longevity of your device.

Thanks for informing me. Honestly, I've seen this done with the original and personally preformed it on the slim and assumed that it worked with the super slim as well. Looks like I made an ass out of myself. I'll make the corrections to the guide.

That said, it stands to reason that it should have a way to detect an open lid. Has that been tried? Plugging it in with the lid open?

How can we do that on the super slim model? Or what the other option to do this self cleaning?

I'm afraid I don't know how to preform this test on the super slim. I would search youtube/web searches.
