Hello friends, that’s me blowing my horn. It’s not a huge horn, it just goes “toot toot!” I try not to do that too much, but I just got this email sent over via our Mission Repair Website today:

Description: I was very pleased with my recent experience with Mission: Repair in Olathe. Not only did you save me a lot of $$, but I was in and out in less than 30 minutes. I feel as if you are very honest & reliable. I was telling my friends about my experience and one of them chimed in with a similar positive experience. Thank you, Bobbi L.

I remember this customer. I was in the front office at the time, saw her bring in her MacBook Pro…and stated that it was making a “whining” sound. The Apple Store said that it “wasn’t” the hard drive, so I opened it up!
What I found was a failing logic board fan. The bearing can go out on these guys faster than you’d like, and I had a new one in stock. I cleaned the inside of her laptop out, showed her the failing fan, installed a new one, powered it up and “VOILA!” the annoying sound was gone.
It was a good lesson for me too because it’s a reminder to all that those fans are there for a reason. When they start “talking” to you like this one did, it’s time to have it replaced. Once they fail it could cause the entire system to overheat and shut down permanently. Bobbi did the right thing and nipped it in the bud. She brought it here (after the Apple Store 😉 for a repair that was not only fast but affordable. Thanks for your business Bobbi!
Take care, Ryan
