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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
