Acer Predator Helios G3-571 - Laptop fan noise?

edited June 2019 in Predator Laptops
So lately I opened up my laptop and give it a good cleaning. Gas can blow, repasting and at all that but then while using it I start to notice the sound makes this really annoying squeaky sound (something like an airplane engine) and I couldn't figure out how to make it stop. The temp and the fan speed seems to be running normal and cool so I don't know what's possibly causing this

    Have you tried disconnecting the fans again?

    yes I plugged out both of the fan's wire and re plug it in again but it doesn't not seem to work

    It probably is cause I did happen to blow the gas can a bit too hard while clearing out the dust so it might have tampered with something inside the fan but I'm not too sure. I'll get a screw driver and check if there's anything messed up inside. Will update more

    Yes using pressured air to clean the laptop fans its not a good idea if not professionally done you can damage them unless you can open it to clean it without voiding the warranty always find specialized help or even contact acer support to find out if they would be able to clean it for you under warranty

     I see but my warranty only works for the US while I live in Canada or currently in Asia for the time being, it would probably be too costy to send it back and forth just for repair but I also dont wanna risk the warranty but I decided not to unscrew it just yet and wait for a few days to see what happens and the noise seems to stop but the fan now seems to be going full blast 24/7 (on idle or not) with it monitoring temperatures at 85+ even though it doesn't feel like it so I'm mildly concerned. Should I unscrew it now and see what's going on or take it to a repair shop?

    Thanks
