820-3437 snapped female screw hole off board. How to reattach?


New member
While attaching the fan to the edge of the board I over tightened the screw and the female hole side that is attached to the board snapped off. What would be the best way to reattach it to the board? I know superglue is frowned upon, so is there a epoxy that would work better? Should I solder it back into place? Would that be strong enough? Andy advice?



You did not over tighten the screw, you used a screw that was too long, that's how this happens. The fan has 3 different screws, a long one(middle), one with a big head(IO board) and a short one(board side).
