Agreed. Rolland is the man. Very responsive to both e-mail and phone calls. Knows his stuff. When my 75 needs a refresh, it is going to Rolland. Did an excellent job on the 45 I gave my son for his birthday. \:D/

I can guarantee that fan is not unique to the tfm75. It has almost certainly been put into other things such as cell site radios, microwave transmitter units and or big computer server racks. I would almost bet you can pull the lid off the amp find the manufacturer & the part number to proceed from there. It should not be difficult to contact the manufacturer or a supplier of their stuff to obtain a replacement. Replacing it yourself should be a plug & play no brainer. For the folks who can't program their dvr or vcr your 5 year old should be able to handle replacing it for you... 8)
By the way I probably don't need to mention this, but common sense says it's not a good idea to use the amp until you get the fan replaced/repaired #-o .....

Is it like the PM-1.5 fan?
It should sound like it isn't there!
