Well if you've swapped out to different fans in Port 1 then its time to RMA the controller.

Not much else you can do.

The Rhoebus is one of the best fan controller out here but we are never aware of defective unit. If you plug multiple fan in the slot 1 and they wont work but plugged in other channel they work then you have all you need RMA the best. Hope it will go fine, newegg have good RMA service so it should!
