D700 Cooling fan always runs

The fan on my d700 always turns on the moment I key up. Is this normal, a setting change, or is it "malfunctioning"? It's a bit annoying as the fan is noisy. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

Mine does the same, a few years ago I had to change the fan itself, because it came too noisy. I'm sure I got the fan from Kenwood, or Giga parts, good luck, 73 de kf4kul

If you need a new fan this is a great place for parts! https://www.pacparts.com/

Normal for fan to run upon key up. Fan is fairly noisy, also normal.

Next time fan gets noisy, peel the sticker off, drill a tiny hole if one is not already there, add 1 drop of 3n1 oil, all fixed! Replace sticker or add a day of silicon bathroom chalk

My D710 fan starts as soon as I key up and will run for another two minutes after I unkey.
