Hi.

Where can I buy a new PSU brick for my old UM2?

It has started to make a 'fleeeer' noise, the display blinks and the leds too. So it seems something is not going well in the PSU.

I have found the Ultimaker store does not sell any original printer parts. Should I start looking on ebay  ?

    Try aliexpress and ebay and amazon.  These supplies are expensive but I think it's worth it to get the one from meanwell.

     

    There are two that work:

    GST220A24-R7B
    GS220A24-R7B

     

    I find the one without the "T" to be more reliable - it puts out a little more power and is less likely to reboot for no apparent reason (but the reason is the printer went over the power limit for a second or two).

     

    On the other hand, the power supply you have now, may be as good as new if you just let it reboot.  I have had these power supplies get into strange software states and if you power it completely off (unplug the cord and turn on the printer to drain it - otherwise it might take days to drain it) and then turn it back on again it can be as good as new.

    In addition to @gr5 I recommend you get a genuine Meanwell PSU again - independent of where you buy it. And I never had a case where the GST made problems.
