Hub 4 fan running constantly

Tuning in

We had a hub 4 installed in Nov 21.  The fan has been running non stop since then which doesn’t seem right.  It’s very annoying and everyone that comes round comments on how noisy it is.  It is in our living room which isn’t overly warm.  Thermostat is set to 20 degrees when home. It’s on a cool hard surface and is well ventilated.  No complicated set up. I have called VM and also done an online chat.  They advised the problem would be fixed in 24 hrs but it never is?  They also suggested a pinhole reset which we did.  The fan stopped for about 20 minutes and then came back on again and is running constant since.  The hub is also quite warm to touch which worries me.  I have concerns it might be a fire hazard?The light is solid white and service is good. The person I spoke to on the phone said he can send an engineer out but we would have to pay if there is no fault? I asked if it was normal for the fan to run 24/7 but he didn’t really know! Can anybody else help? Virgin offered this hub as a free upgrade but wish I hadn’t bothered!

Probably clogged with dust if you look at the base.

Give it a brush out with a paintbrush and a good hoovering as well and see how it is after that.

The fan has been running constantly since day 1 when it was installed and came straight out of the box.  I dust, clean and hoover it regularly and it has no difference what so ever? 


Sorry, typo, it has made no difference what so ever.

Hey @LozzaD18,

Welcome to the community and thanks for taking the time to post your issue on the forums.

I'm sorry to hear of the issues that you're having with your hub 4, I would be happy to take a look into this for you but have been and we should be able to send out a technician to have this looked into further as it sounds like you have a faulty hub.

I can arrange the appointment from here but would need to confirm a few details via a private message, that I will drop over in a moment.
Please look out for the private message and we can get started.

Hi, an engineer came out on Saturday and confirmed it was a faulty hub.  He replaced it with a new one and it’s been working great now 👍🏻
