  • Patent number: 9946253
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an electronic apparatus detects an abnormality of at least one of a first fan for a first device in a first housing and a second fan for a second device in a second housing, and includes a receiver and circuitry. The receiver receives a first signal of a first sound collected by a first microphone and a second signal of a second sound collected by a second microphone. The first sound includes a sound produced by a shaft or a bearing of the first fan. The second sound includes a sound produced by a shaft or a bearing of the second fan. The circuitry detects an abnormality of one of the first and second fans by at least using the first sound and the second sound included in the first and second signals.
