    Hi,

    Love your products. Have had a sunpower, powermodule and hybrid fixture in the past. Scaled back recently and bought a 8 x 48 powermodule used. Everything works fine but the fans are incredibly loud, louder then any other products I've had. Checked the fans, no impediment and everything is spinning normally. Any thoughts or ideas?

    thanks

    What voltage are the fans set at?

    Usually this is a result of the fan cover rubbing on the fan itself. Gently pull up on the fan cover to put some space between the ATI Logo and the fan itself. Typically the Powermodule is very very quiet, so this is almost certainly the issue.

    This was the problem. Person I bought from had replaced standard power supply with 24v!

    Thanks, I think I figured it out. Ordering a new power supply.

    Thanks for the help
