Explain more details. Does it fail connecting USB? Does it fail the limit switch tests?

Everyone at UM Support speaks dutch. There are nice people there who can help you and are in your time zone. They have been very busy but are finally caught up and would be happy to help you. I suggest you call them tomorrow.

Do you have a voltmeter? The voltage should be >10Volts. I think 19V. You could disconnect the connector at the fan and measure the voltage. If you have the Ulticontroller you can turn the fan on with that - set it to 255 (full fan).

Normally the fan doesn't come on until the second layer of printing (this is setting in Cura).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
