UM2+ with Octopi: Rear Fan Issue

After just a couple of attempts, I’ve managed to bring my UM2+ to work with OctoPrint on a Raspberry Pi.

Everything works well: file transfer, printing, camera, remote controlling of the process…

However, one thing I can’t bring to function: REAR FAN!

The two fans directed downwards work properly, but the rear fan remains still through the whole printing procedure.

Does anyone have the same issue and – even more importantly – a solution for that?

    And does it work when you print from the sd card?

    I should normally come on when the nozzle reaches 40°c

     

    Yes, it does work when I print from the SD. That's why I believe it's an Octopi issue...

    Problem "solved"!

    Actually it disappeared.

    After one week I decided to connect the OctoPi to my UM2+ again and now it works!?

    I did not change ANYTHING...

    IT-god works in mysterious ways...
