    Follow these steps to test the fans and make sure they’re working properly:

    Test the lights and fans

    1. Open the pod door with the app or the keypad.
      1. Pass: The lights and fans turn on when you open the door, stay on for 30 seconds, and then turn off. 
      2. Fail: The lights turn on, but the fans don’t. 
    2. Enter the pod and lock the door behind you.
      1. Pass: The lights and fans stay on while you’re in the pod for more than one minute.  
      2. Fail: The fans turn off while you’re in the pod for more than one minute. 
    3. Use the in-app experiences.
      1. Pass: You can adjust the lights with the app. 
      2. Fail: The lights flicker or don't adjust.
