I started to make a stir plate following from a search on this forum (<http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-s...y-build-86252/
). It looks like my fan might be bad out of an old computer I had. It was in the basement for about 3 months and the fan had been working. The fan I used had 3 wires red, black, and white. I tried hooking it up as shown for the 2 wire fan instructions and that didn't work. I also tried hooking it directly to the power source and then tried all of the possible combinations directly to the power source. Is there something I am missing or do I just have a bad fan? I have another old computer that I can get my hands on as well and get the magnet and fan out of but would appreciate any help.
The power source does work as it lights up the led light on the power switch to the stir plate.
