    Hi players,

    I have a question regarding the fan on the Roadcase BG800. Its quite noisy, but when I play its unnoticeable. The problem is between songs in a quiet venue, its bugging me, because I think its audible to everyone.

    Has anyone tried a thermostat to regulate it or maybe changed the fan for a silent running model?

    Have you tried cleaning it? Dust build up can make a fan nosier.
    Sometimes fan bearing wear out and cause noise.

    Contact PJB support. Don't put in any fan they don't approve.

    Hi seamonkey,

    Thanks for the advice. I can clean the fan first, see how it turns out.

    Yup, that did the trick. Two decades worth of goo now gone. Its not noiseless, but much, much better :)

    Im glad I posted before I went ahead and complicated matters.
