Re: [APD] Re: Vortex HELP! -- No Fan!?
I jucst confirmed, there is no fan at the top of the motor shaft, just a
whole lot of shaft hanging out there under the black cap. I haven't taken
anything else apart...so I doubt there's any way they can tell me to GTFO!
Wish there was a way to tell them there's just no fan and have them send me
one :-( Oh well, it's just gonna take the few weeks I was hoping to avoid
