    What do you mean it stays fixed?
    The speed doesnt change?

    Most CPU fans will stay constant unless it gets too hot then they will rev up faster, or they just stay constant always

    ah, that can be any multitude of things

    dead spot on the motor, fried wire in the coil, bad bearings, etc

    Motors fail, and in the case of computer fans that are dirt cheap to replace it's hardly worth the effort to care why...
