PC-Fans to replace one ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · PC-Fans to replace one ?

Help there,

One of the fans of my Ultimaker 2 does not work anymore. Unfortunately, the spare is not available at my usual shop (Makershop in France) and will request a few days to be delivered.

Is there a possibility to buy a PC-fan and mount it ? Does someone has the specification of a compatible fan ? Is there any drawback to use such a replacement ?

Thanks,

Jean-Philippe

    If it is the 5V fan for the print head, almost any 5V will do.

    If it is one of the print fans, I strongly encourage you to by an original one or replace both. If you install two different fans it won't work very well; if you decide to source fans yourself, you need to be sure they will work with PWM -- not all fans are happy with PWM...

    As you are from Belgium, you could also consider asking @DidierKlein who is re-seller in our small country...
