One of my 3d printer fans has stopped working need a replacement

Posted · One of my 3d printer fans has stopped working need a replacement

Hi,

 

One of the printhead fans (on the left) of my 3D printer has stopped working. I have checked the wiring and all seems to be fine. Has anyone found a UK supplier for a replacement, it seems impossible. Also I have read on other posts that you can replace the heat sink fan with a quieter model, but again I am struggling to find a UK supplier. All the ultimaker recommended sites don't sell replacement fans it would appear

 

Thanks

    Every official Ultimaker reseller should be able to order the needed spare parts. Be aware that often not all parts are visible in the webshop, but just call or mail them what you need.

    Hi 

     

    Did you find a UK supplier for the fan at the rear of the heatshink?  My UM2 is working but is very noisy.

     

    Need to find a UK supplier myself.

     

    Regards

     

    Paul

    I emailed 3D Gbire and they got back pretty quickly. They stock all original ultimaker parts so not the quieter fans, but means I can replace the printhead fan. It came to £8.66 + Vat + shipping so was £17.82 when it was all added up.
