I picked up an old treadmill off facebook a month ago and the built in fan is terrible and loud. Trying to decide if it's worth the effort of opening it up and swapping it out with something of a higher quality.

Whatever you swap it out with needs to be capable of blowing the same volume of air at the same static pressure as the original.

 

If it's shot anyway, try peeling the fan's sticker back and applying a drop or two of light machine oil to the bearing surface.

 

Any fan's going to be quieter than the motor and belt when they're running, I wouldn't worry about putting a super-quiet fan in there.

Dell owns my soul.

Basically to get confirmation that I should definitely do this and it won't secretly be a pain in the ass that I wasn't expecting.

People use the fan on the treadmill? 

People avoiding actually using the treadmill make projects to upgrade the treadmill

I always thought the fan was an incredibly bad idea anyway and taking it out would be better than swapping it.
