The fan is not reliable, replace it. Besides voltage and physical mounting characteristics the main specification is CFM - Cubic Feet per Minute - which is the measure of how much air it moves.

Subject: [SunHELP] FCO #A0089-1 only on five-bladed fans?
I've got an Ultra 1 in which, not surprisingly, the CPU fan has failed.
The fan has seven blades. I called Sun here in Sweden to have it replaced
but they told me that the FCO only applies to five-bladed fans.
Has anyone else succeeded in getting a replacement for a seven-bladed fan?
If not, what are my alternatives? Buying from Sun? Third-party? Can I use
a fan for an Intel system? If so, should it be designed for a 486 or a
The fan runs if I help it a bit. Does this imply that it's possible to
repair it, or would this just be wasted effort?
