    Hello, just wondering if this is normal. The fans on my 24" V2 have been coming on lately, but only in very short bursts.

    They come on for 5 seconds, go off for 30 seconds, and repeat. The lights are running for about 12 hrs total, maxing out at 75% for 5 hours. Does this sound like normal fan operation?

    Thanks!

    They only come on when needed, as the temp rise to a certain temp fans come on until below that temp, yours must be just hitting the temp limit so the fans don't need to run very long to cool it back off.
    To test to make sure they are not fautly you can set the % of all channels to 100% and see if they stay on longer without cut outs, but to me that is normal operation what you are seeing.
