Cooling fans not spinning to cool controller board

Posted (edited) · Cooling fans not spinning to cool controller board

Hi

I want to cool my ultimaker 2 controller board. So i designed a housing

to hold 2 fans 50mm x 50mm. These are SUNON fans

12v  1.26 amps each. I have connected both fans together, positive wire from one fan

together with the negative wire from the other. the other 2 wires plus and minus are

with connector. When i plug the connector to the board marked ( FAN 19-24 V )

and power it up, the fans dont spin. I see that the fans are trying to spin, but ever so slowly,

barely nothing but trying. Am i doing something wrong ?? I am not that electronic tech savvy.

Can someone please help me.

I have attached a picture.

Thanks

So you got a china board and it doesn't work... Well, that can happen.

Also, try the direct power 2 pins near the plug. You can't just plug any fan and hope it works.

I tried connecting it to the other one that you showed in the image, but the fans still do not turn, can you please help me. i don't know why, it should work.

is there something i have to add in the circuit of the fans ??

and the fans have 1.26 watts output not 1.26 amps.

Make sure the fans work,maybe use extra power and use an arduino or something.
