On arrival of one desktop Computer for repair to my place I found the computer is full of dust. I take out my Electric Air blower pump which I use for blow the dust. but it was not working so here my priority is to make the tool in working condition.

After primary physical visual inspection, I checked power plug for some resistance but it didn’t show any reading on the Multimeter it indicates some open circuit hence I open the unit for inspecting it from inside.

So opened top cover using flat screw driver.

After opening the unit on visual inspection nothing seems doubtful. Checked On/Off switch found OK.

Then checked continuity of power cable not getting any continuity on both the line & neutral cable. From the two pin plug on power cord to the switch.

    remark: The fanblade is mounted upside down by the proof of your pictures, is that correct??

      Thanks for your input.....NO it is not correct , it was my mistake which i made right afterwards when i realize ....this is already mentioned in end of the article.
      if you put Blade Upside down it will blow the air initially;but unit will get hot in few minutes, because it will not suck the air properly to blow.

    good job on the repair. finding a faulty power cable is kind of nice. last week I was working on a vaccum cleaner and the cord was the problem so I could relate to that. thanks for sharing and have a blessed day
