Dual 12v 25mm Fans on Original Ultimaker won't run at less than 100%

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I've recently upgraded my Original Ultimaker (bought in 2012) with this dual-fan mod from NeatherBot:

Everything went great, except I can't seem to run the fans at anything less than 240/255. At full speed, it seems a little excessive and is quite noisy.

I'm running the latest Marlin firmware, and the latest version of CURA. I've tested the fan speeds by just manually sending commands through CURA.

These are the fans:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
