I have a Samsung HT-TX72 home theater system. The cooling fan has been going bad (RDM5015S), I get a FAN CHECK alert before it powers off. I got a replacement fan (AFB0512HB) (recommended on FixYa) but it has a blue wire in addition to the black and red that the original fan has. Do I tape off the blue wire and connect red to red and black to black on the old connector?
push starting the old fan. then purchased replacement.
Hello, my name is XXXX XXX I will be glad to assist you. Tape off the Blue Wire on the fan, as this is a remote trigger and does not need to be used, and simply connect the Red and Black to the same colored wires on the fan connector on the Samsung. If the fan does not still work, then connect the Blue and Red together to the Red on the Samsung, and the Black to the Black on the Samsung.
