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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
