One of our 440-48 switches has a pretty noisy fan. Does anyone know if this is field replaceable?

Hi Sheldon,

The X440 does not have field replaceable fans. If it is excessively loud, I would suggest opening a case with GTAC to troubleshoot the fan issues.

Hello,

Please refer to the X440 datasheet: Fan Speed and Acoustic Noise: http://learn.extremenetworks.com/rs/extreme/images/Summit-X440x-DS.pdf
Has the noise increased over time? 
It is optional to do a dB(A) test to verify the noise level.

Noise has now sort of backed down. I'm planning on climbing up to the mount and see if a little air blowout will help....maybe it's just a lot of dust gathered in there.
