It spun! Yes, first time. Now I'm relived that my unit isn't defective. Here's how, if your interested-

I was in the process of overclocking my GPU and was running Heaven to test stability.

15 min into the test....My PSU surface temp was around 45°C (As measured by my not so accurate surface temp instrument)

Then I suddenly heard another sound, I knew my case fans were already set to 100%, so hoping for the best I just looked into the back of my PSU, and hot air was being exhausted. Using a small torch flashlight(edit), I could clearly see the fan spinning!

And I was surprised at how low the temp of the PSU dropped later, to about 32°C in less than 6 min!

Just thought of sharing it with you guys! :)

My bad, replace 'torch' with Flashlight

I kid I know some places say torch instead of flashlight. :D
