My ultimaker original + fan is not spinning fast enough

Recommended Posts

True @gr5 but if it's the transistor of the mainboard fan pwm there's always a chance that just works but 'weird'.

Check the fan control con the Ulticontroller/Control/Temperature/Fan and set it to 255 like gr5 said. Does it spin fully?

If not,

Change fan speed to 1. Does it spin faster at 10 than at 255? (255=100%)

So please check how fast it works at 255 and at 1. If it moves faster at 255 than at 10 then there's nothing wrong with it, also make a video of what's happening, that always helps.

5v connector plug it's different and doesn't fit the molex of the 24v fans.

Remember it's the same board you have on um2.

But indeed that's the question, does it change the speed at all??

I would suggest that please make a video, sometimes it's just easier because you might be calling something with a name and we understand other thing etcetc.

    • "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.
