HELP! Fan holder falling out

Recommended Posts

Posted · HELP! Fan holder falling out

The fan holder that you open to change the extruder heads - mine is coming loose and falling out for no reason that I can see. The magnets are still there but I don't know exactly what is happening or how to fix it. I'm using scotch tape but that's a quick fix and I need something permanent. How do I repair it?

Can you share a picture? it usually helps.

Normally the magnets touch the 2 front long screws to hold on to... is there something stopping the lid to close completely? Is the "silicone nozzle cover" properly seated? are the little metal "wings" on the bottom metal plate not bend (check if left and right look the same).

Apparently one of the magnets had fallen out of the holster (and had become twisted around the steel pole) - gluing it back into place fixed the issue. Thanks!
