Fan wiring

Hot end sprung a leak. When reassembling I noticed that the blue and purple wires had come out of the fan connection plug at the top of the hot end assembly.

Could someone kindly tell me what the blue wire should connect to. To the red wire of the fan lead, or to the black wire of the fan lead?

Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I didn't explain myself properly.

    The blue and purple wires have become detached from the plug.

    The two parts of the plugs are still together.

    The red and black wires are attached to one side, and on the other side no wires are connected.

    I need to resolder the blue and purple wires to the plug and I don't know whether to line the blue wire up with the red wire or with the black wire.

    Thanks.

    If you hook it up backwards the fan will probably spin backwards or not at all.

    I did hook it up backwards and the fan didn't work so hopefully a bit more (rather tricky) soldering will make all well.

      • 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.
