1. Is the transparent sticker off?
2. Do they work when the computer starts? (the moment you press the power button the fans should start spinning)
3. Have you monitored the GPUs temperature? (for example MSI Afterburner; the fans usually only start spinning when a certain temperature is reached)

Note that as long as the cooler is mounted properly, it is very unlikely you will damage the card through heat, even when the fans are not working. GPUs (as well as CPUs) have temperature sensors and will just throttle down to very slow speeds or maybe cause a bluescreen (or similar), but should not actually cause hardware damage.

In idle operation like in Windows doing nothing (or just watching Netflix etc.) the graphics card will most likely be just operate in passive mode with fans turned off anyway.
