Hm, really? I don't think the motor is running; the P/S makes
absolutely no sound at all. Still going strong. Do mean that
the motor will burn out because it isn't running, but should be?
In this case, can I replace the (hard-wired) fan with some
component from Radio Shack (a resistor??) which fools the
circuit into thinking that it's a fan? What sort of component
would I need? The fan is 12V, 0.15A.
