Where to get a power supply/adaptor for Ultimaker 2?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

We have an Ultimaker 2 (which is awesome) that we purchased in 2014. In the last few months, the power supply adaptor has become a bit flakey. It occasionally does not seem to work (the blue LED does not come on) and we have to leave it for a while (1-6 hours), try it again, and then hope it comes back to life. It is still working, but I'm worried about this problem getting worse.

I'd like to order a new adaptor and had seen a post on another forum, pointing us to this piece.

We're in the US, and it'd be great to purchase something over here for which the shipping would be less expensive. Anyone know the right thing to buy? Thanks in advance!

I'm in the US. I just googled the part number and ordered one through ebay I think. It was a bit expensive - I think $90.

I have 2 (two) power supplies that do what you say. It's more I think if you cut power while the printer is moving or something like that. Once it turns on I have never had the power suply fail mid print. I once had to turn it off for 24 hours and that wasn't enough but when I checked it a week after that it was fine. It's very strange that 24 hours was not enough!

    • "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.
