When the miner software detects an abnormal state, the miner’ dashboard and indicator will indicate the current abnormal status at the same time.

3.2 Malfunction Solutions

3.2.1 Power Supply


  • The fan does not spin and the network port light does not come on when the miner is powered on.


  • Verify that the power cord is plugged tightly and that the power connector is not loose or falling off.
  • The power supply needs to be replaced if the fan doesn’t rotate.
  • Verify the power supply’s output range of 11 to 13 volts using a multimeter.

3.2.2 Network


  • The new miner cannot obtain an IP address


  • Verify the Ethernet status light is on and that the Ethernet port is connected.
  • Check to see if the PC’s IP address and the miner’s IP address are on the same network.
  • Ensure that the DHCP setting for the miner network is enabled. To return to the factory settings if you do not confirm, press and hold the “Reset” button for 7 seconds.

3.2.3 Fan


  • Once powered on, the fan does not spin.
  • Dashboard shows “Oops! Fan cannot start normally, make sure miner is fully constructed and connected to a router”


  • Make sure that the fan cable is inserted firmly.
  • To determine whether the issue is with the fan or the hash board, turn the fan interface crosswise.

3.2.4 High Temperature Protection


  • The miner is closed due to trigger high temperature protection


  • If the temperature is too high, check it out. (above 35℃)
  • Check to see if the fans’ air inlet and outlet are blocked (for instance, if they are facing the wall and have too many obstructions like dust and catkins).
  • After the high temperature protection, restart the miner for at least 10 minutes, and check to see if the temperature remains stable.

3.2.5 Low Hashrate

Situation 1

  • The dashboard shows “Fail to startup”, the hashrate is 0.


  • Attempt to restore the miner by restarting it.
  • To resolve the power supply issue, swap out the hash board’s power cord.
  • To get rid of cable issues, cross-exchange data cables with regular hash boards.

Situation 2

  • Although the pool hashrate is low, the local average hashrate is typical.


  • See if the network has a high latency.
  • In place of the pool comparison test, some pools can currently not adjust to the right difficulty, resulting in low hashrate.

*Please pay attention to the precautions, otherwise your warranty may be affected.
