Where to buy a new UM2 PSU ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Where to buy a new UM2 PSU ?

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.

Regarding GST versus GS2...due to changes in the law, I don't believe it's legal to import the GS2 ones anymore (if you're in the US). GST is the new standard for the part.
