Yeah, like I said before. I never used the discharge feature either until last night. I normally use bulbs. But anyways, No the Yokomo sticker wasn't over the vent holes. I'll rephrase my sentence and say.. I do not recall hearing the fan come on. I was worried about this for a couple weeks. Because I didn't remember hearing them come on during charging. So I read the instructions over and looked up the so called Troubleshooting Guide. For fan it says....
Fan: Fan is program-controlled and only runs when necessary. If fan still doesn't run, there is no fault.
Sooo after reading this. I thought everything was okay. Anyways, I was cleaning the grease out of the bearing for my new F201 while I did the "MATCH" mode on the charger. Initially the battery was discharged. So it went right into charge. After it charged, it beeped. So I looked at the charger and saw that it started to discharge. So I thought fine... it's working so far. Well while I was cleaning out the bearings I had a small wiff of something (mind you I'm cleaning out bearings with cleaner). So I looked around. Looked at the charger, but looked fine. A couple minutes later it got stronger. So I looked around. Looked at the charger. But this time it looked kinda odd. Well, I touched it and sure enough, it was melted. It said discharge was done too (I don't think it beeps after discharge.) I unpluged everything. The case felt uhh soft. So I placed the charger on a fan. And blah blah blah....
Anyways, I really love the charger and think it's great. And I'd like to get it fixed (which I'll send it off this week.) But I was more upset/down than pissed that it happened. I was just curious if anyone else had a fan fail. And I was looking on some advice for stateside warrantly since things aren't tooo clear on the AE website. Not like Novak service.
Well thanks for help. Hopefully I'll get it fixed soon. And I can put back on a new Yokomo Sticker!
And I'll never use the Match/Discharge feature again!
