    Hi all,

    So I just set up my Apex 2016 I had purchased many months ago and I noticed that the fan on the energy bar 832 has this kind of High-pitched whine to it which I am finding extremely irritating. Does anyone else have this problem/is this normal? I would hate to think of all the money I have spent making sure all my equipment runs quietly that the noisiest thing on my setup is this energy bar fan.

    It could be that the fan bearing is going out. If it's anything similar to a computer fan, you can take it apart, put some 3 in 1 oil in it, and put it back together and see if that works. Unless it's under any kind of warranty, then contact Neptune directly and they will either send you a new fan or a new eb832 :)

    I did not end up fixing it, just kind of got used to it to be honest. Neptune wanted me to send my eb832 in and have them evaluate and possibly fix but I explained that I need it to run my reef, so I declined to go that route.
