UMO+/UM2 fan speed controler broken/shorted

Recommended Posts

If the cooling fan it's always on, the first think that dies it's the transistor

It's isn't really easy to change, but I learned the hard way with a friend to do it and I have change it 3 times (crossing fingers).

Read the post and also check my other post, at the end you will see photos of the transistor took off and the new installed. It's a very cheap part and if you don't know how to do it the first time I payed 30-40€ to a guy to do it for me (cheaper than a new board).

Also, you could change the cooling fan connection to the led pwm, it has the same circuit, but to use it you need to rebuild the firmware and change the pins.h of the board.

    • "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.
