We purchase 2- ThreeLeaf T102 - Laptop Cooling Pad for $12.99 each. Shipping was not included. It seemed a good deal but the fans were not well made. Still this post shows how to repair this type of cooling fan.
This post shows the five steps to remove the front panel to repair the loose wiring.
Step 1: Fig.1 above is the ThreeLeaf Logo. Fig.2 and fig.3 shows the first tab upside down. The tab is opposite from the shock rubber pad. There are three more metal tabs that need to be flatten. Now turn it back upright and move the next four tabs flat to remove the top grille layer.

Step 5: Now check to see if the power from your laptop will power up both TreeLeaf fans. Fig.10 shows that orange wire nuts which are rated at 18 A.W.G. gauge. Fig.11 shows the TreeLeaf Cooling Fan is working off the USB port from an HP Laptop. Make sure the fan is pushing air upwards, if not reverse the black with the red, and the red with the blacks leads and this will reverse the fan motors. Now the air should blow upwards. The next post shows how to put the cooling fan together.
