Default Radiator Cooling fan

I have an 06 Cruiser and I have had to replace the radiator cooling fan 2 times in the last 8 months.. What would cause the fan to keep going out? This is getting frustrating..

Bad brushes in the fan motor. You could have gotten hold of a bad (made in China) fan replacement, or maybe some sort of short in the wiring. Hard to tell unless you inspect the fan motor to see why it failed.

Probably one out of two of the people on this forum have had to replace the fan once (maybe a little less) but once it's changed the second fan usually lasts a long time. It's the original fan from the factory that burns out and has to be replaced. I replaced my OEM fan about 6 years ago.

What CREWZIN said. Chinese replacement parts are hit and miss. Some are excellent. Some are horrible, Save your receipts, always. The replacement fan assembly I bought was made in Thailand and it has been very good.
