fan comes on after shutdown

Brand new 6500, just installed 1.3. Even after NOT transmitting, I shut down the software, then press the green off button and turn off the radio, the fan<s> go to high speed, and stay running, until I turn off the Power Supply. I turn the PS back on, fans then don't run, till I go thru the shut down cycle again. I've had the radio less than  4 hours, but don't think this is right. thanks. KQ4KK

    I can confirm that my 6500 does not operate that way.   I never hear my fans running unless I have been transmitting rtty for a few minutes at full power.
    Suggest you contact the Flex help desk..
