Hello, I currently using a cooler master U3 cooling pad, recently the fans are not spinning 'automatically' every time when I plugin, and I have to always using an object to give the fans a poke then only they start spinning, what does this mean? I know some will say it's time for a new one, but my brother has a similar one and his doesn't have this problem and working way longer than mine.

fans are mechanical things and can malfunction any time, can't compare it to another, like you said, time for a new one.

That cooling pad has 3 fan units that are movable.
Have you viewed the photos of it at its web site?

as flavallee said, it's movable so it's cleaned frequently, and I also tried using WD-40 to lubricate the fan motor when it this problem started, and always after lubricated it will work fine for few months then the problem reoccurs again. I'm ok with keeping on lubricating it every few months if there's no solution, but who like to be bothered by the same thing again and again if there's a solution out there. :)
