Use this guide to replace the cooling fan in your Steam Deck, or remove it for cleaning.

Before you begin, completely power down and unplug all cables from your Steam Deck. Remember to follow general electrostatic discharge (ESD) safety procedures while repairing the device.

    • To minimize risk of damage, turn on your Steam Deck and allow the battery to discharge below 25% before starting your repairs. A charged lithium-ion battery can be very dangerous if accidentally punctured.

    • Before starting this guide, power down your Steam Deck and unplug any cables.

    • As an extra precaution, Valve recommends putting your Steam Deck into battery storage mode within the BIOS before starting any internal repairs. Read how to do that here.

    • If you have a microSD card installed, make sure to remove it before opening the Steam Deck.

    • Use a Phillips driver to remove the eight screws securing the back cover:

    • Four 9.5 mm screws

    • Four 5.8 mm screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your Steam Deck.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to remove the piece of foil tape covering the hidden screw on the board shield.

    • If possible, try not to rip or tear this tape so it can be reused. If necessary, you can fashion a replacement by cutting a piece of aluminum foil tape to fit.

    • Use a Phillips driver to remove the two 3.7 mm screws securing the fan.

    • No, your eyes don't deceive you! The other two fan screws were removed earlier in the disassembly: they double as two back cover screws.

    • Remove the fan.

    • When installing a replacement fan, peel off the plastic liner on the cable adhesive and adhere it to the fan body in the same location as the cable on the old fan, so it'll lay on the side of the board shield and not get pinched underneath.

Hi ifixit Team, as the cooler seems to be a non factory one: how does it compare noise wise to the standard Steam Deck cooler, which is unbearably loud?

Peter Black - 답글

I addition to Peter's comment, in would be helpful to know the manufacturer and model. It would seem that there are at least two, perhaps more models being used; one brand in particular being prone to the high-pitched "whining" issue.

Cameron - 답글

To those asking, you want a huaying fan as opposed to a delta fan. The delta is terribly bad with its acoustics.

Christopher Stanton - 답글

is this the delta or huaying?
