Stop the Nozzle Fan

Recommended Posts

On UM2?

If so and its a older model then nope. Its on and stays on

The new machines it only comes on when the nozzle reaches 40deg or so.

buy THIS one if it noisey. you can find it on ebay also. Its so quiet you dont even know its on.

from what I understand no its not possible, but on more recent models the fan only comes on at a certain temperature.

many others have complained about the fan noise, I have just ordered a replacement fan from EBay which is supposed to be quieter (approx 23 db)

only problem with the replacement one is you have to join the wires. I de-soldered the wires off the old fan and put them on the new one. this way they still use the plug. Or you can solder direct or buy the plug connections.

not sure of your location, as the site mentioned by Lamben is in US, my EBay purchased fan is from Germany,


Yes I got the one from ebay Germany also. Then every time i went to ebay the language auto changed to German for some reason :p stupid ebay.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
