Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the cooling fan does not work yet the fan controller is new then the most likely cause would be the fan itself, but there are many possibilities for the fan not working and electrical testing will be required to determine exactly what is wrong.

Are you hoping to do the required electrical testing yourself?

The first step will be to test for power and ground at the fan motor when it should be running.
