aftermarket fan not working

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · aftermarket fan not working

I ordered a turbo fan off of wish and cant get it to work. The fan that cools the extruder is always running so i ulpugged it and pluged in the new fan and nothing happens. I dont know a whole lot about electronics but does it have to do with the volts and amps of the fan?

p.s the new fan is 24volts and .12 amps

i also have another aftermarket fan that is 12volts and .09 amps and that one dosnt work either. The one on the printer is 12volts but dosnt say how many amps

UM2 or UM3? Please update your printer into your profile so it shows up on every post.

I'm pretty sure the UM2 fan is 5V. Current is not as much critical but lower is better for the printer.

Also I would expect the 12V fan to almost work with 5V.  If you spin it manually while on does it spin then?
