Main fan issues

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Awhile back I replaced the temp sensor and Nozzle/ hotend.

It seems that the wires have a tendency to interfere with the main fan occasionally depending on where the print head is. I have tried to reposition them multiple times, but wonder if anyone else has this problem or has tried to remedy it. I may try to slip all of them through a piece of heat shrink tube or other wire loom type think to keep them out of the way or interference. Since I am likely going to take it all apart again and reposition things is it worth changing anything else related to the main fans etc...

Thanks,

Q

I plan on taking it back apart and making sure the wires are routed properly and free from damage. Does anyone have a picture of the wires coming down and to the fans, temp sensor and heater block? I just want to see if I can get a good idea of the proper slack and placement.

Thanks,Q
