Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server ?

Dell PE1800 psu wont swith off...Computer powers down but psu fan continues to run. Have to pull the power plug to shut it down.

Answers :

Besides Geordie's suggestion which is excellent you may want to check any other server fans are operating correctly and are not clogged up.
\015\012Also consider extra cooling. My servers all have extra cooling in a push/pull configuration
Sounds like the PSU is overheating. Some PSU's are designed to keep the fan running to cool it down even after system shut down. I would let the fan run after shutdown to see how long it takes to shut itself off. If there are no environmental issues tat are causing overheating you might want to consider replacing the PSU.
