    I started hearing some noise from the AutoPilot fans

    Hi everyone, I am new to the forum (not new with Autopilot systems, though)

    My Autopilot Digital is into its 6th season now, and I started hearing some noise from the fans.

    So, I changed the fans. However, those replacement fans are double thicker than original ones (40x40x20mm instead of 40x40x10mm). Will it make any trouble? They are from the same manufacturer (Sunon) just they specify 0.76 watts instead of original 1 watt. Airflow is the same or even better than on original fans. I have installed them carefully so they don't touch any wires.

    Any suggestions? Can I keep those or should I better search for fans that are the same as original?

    As long as they're not interfering with anything else they'll be fine. The lower wattage is most likely due to a more efficient design.
