Radiator Fan Motor

Radiator Fan Motor

When engine is constantly running and gets hot. The car’s cooling system is responsible for carrying heat away to the outside air. The radiator fan motor powers the cooling fan, which keeps the engine from overheating. The fan is located in the engine compartment, at the front or rear of the radiator. 

Many of the fans are electric. The electric radiator fans mounted in the front of the radiator are known as pusher fans. Those located at the rear of the radiator are called puller fans. The pusher fans receive air that comes in through the grill area and then they push that cooler air over the radiator. The puller fans pull the air from the grill, drawing it over the radiator. The electric fans get their power through the engine itself.

How Does a Radiator Fan Work?

A radiator fan exchanges heat in the engine. When an engine is running, it produces heat, and that heat dissipates so that the engine does not become too hot and overheat. The cooling fans are part of the cooling system and their design helps to keep a cooler temperature in the engine.
The fan cools the coolant as it passes through the radiator. The coolant flows through the entire engine and is responsible for absorbing the extra heat and thereby preventing the engine from overheating. The fan blows the air from the outside and passes it through the radiator. 

The thermostat in the cooling system controls many of the electric fans. When the temperature in the engine reaches a certain preset temperature, the fan will begin cooling the engine. When the temperature dips below that preset temperature, the fan will turn off.
