Remove failed power supply

You remove a failed power supply so you can replace it with a new one. When you remove a power supply, you slide the part out of the shelf.

Before you begin


  1. Unpack the new power supply, and set it on a level surface near the drive shelf.
    Save all packing materials for use when returning the failed power supply.
  2. Disconnect the power cables:
    1. Open the power cord retainer, and then unplug the power cord from the power supply.
    2. Unplug the power cord from the power source.
  3. Locate the tab to the right of the power supply and press it towards the power supply unit.

  4. Locate the handle on the front of the power supply.
  5. Use the handle to slide the power supply straight out of the system.
    Attention: When removing a power supply, always use two hands to support its weight.

After you finish

Go to Install new power supply.
