Anyone know how to get a replacement fan ?

I was using my cooler and here my pit towel got caught in the fan and burned the fan up.
I think the unit still works hopefully otherwise, but it did get super hot.

Does anyone know if I can send the unit back to anyone to get it fixed or if I can just get a replacement fan from either Much more or from an electronics shop ?
I have a pretty good shop by me called Philcap who usually stocks alot of fans like that. Also I think radio shack has fans, but I have no clue if they would be the right application.

any help is appreciated.,

What ever you do make sure you motor will rotate before you pull the trigger. on your radio.
I agree, I froze mine down to under 28 deg F and then added some freeze spray after taking it off the cooler and my car was on the line for an oval race and it never moved when the bell rang. A guy manually gave the wheels a bump and it finally turned the motor over.
Now I know next time not to over freeze it

I'm not too sure why but every unit seems to vary, even in the same place in the room, at the same time, for the same amount of time.
We did a test with a few in the same place for the same amount of time. Most reached about the 1-2*C(not sure what faranheit) 1 was very poor at 4.5*C and one reached -1*C. The guy's that reached -1 is just incredible, he hasn't played with it any way, it'll just freeze itself to anything near it! Leave it on your pit towel for a short amount of time and next thing your doing is figuring out how to remove it! Yesterday it froze itself to the motor can he regurlarly has to pick ice off it. It seems some peoples are beter than others

In my post above I mentioned I burned up the fan. I took my muchmore unit to radio shack and they suggested this as a replacement fan. The fan and heatsink looked very similar to the one on the much more unit and the holes looked very close to matching up. And the voltage range was 10-13v so it seems like it would work. Do you agree ?

Also the fan has 3 wires, a black, red and yellow
which 2 would i need to use on the much more unit ?

here is a link to the fan I am talking about,

Remove the yellow. Thats for CPU/MB with temp controlled sensors and you will be fine.

I had to use that exact same fan on my cooler because I broke some blades on the stock fan, and the radio shack fan is nowhere near as powerful as the one that comes on the cooler from the factory.

So will it work or is it best to try and contact muchmore for a new fan?
I hightly doubt they will sell just the fan.

anyone know a good replacement or what the specs are on the muchmore fan?
I am sure I could find something on the net from an electronics supplier if i had the specs

also my next question is I didnt catch that the fan was stuck right away and the heat sink got very hot, I unplugged it all and let it set. Can you harm the Peltier unit by getting too hot ?
