VERY annoying high pitch fan noise


Recommended Posts

Posted · VERY annoying high pitch fan noise



I googled this title and saw no issues on that - i've just installed a brand new S5 (it was in the box for a year..)

When the print head starts its fan/s a HIGH pitch noise fills the room and drives me crazy... i owned a Sigma R16 so i know about this annoying issue.


Prints are very quit... but this high pitch noise cant possibly conform to an "office friendly" 3D printer.


I appreciate any help/suggestions.


Thank you

    I would contact your reseller and they should send you a new fan. The noise you describe is not normal, I hear on my S5 just a normal fan noise, nothing more.
