Hi,

 

I'm currently getting a fan error from my Ultimaker S5 (https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011706379-ER86-Air-Manager-fan-is-unable-to-rotate-at-the-desired-speed)

Before trying out the hardware solutions suggested, I wanted to try updating the firmware. I loaded a firmware version on my USB stick and want to load it through the GUI on the printer, but the screen is just stuck at this, and doesn't change after rebooting, or if I disconnect the fan

I was also trying to update the firmware via network (ethernet) connection, but my computer fails to detect the printer over the Internet.

 

Any thoughts?

    I don't have an air manager but I'm 90% sure you can just disconnect it (and optionally the material station), reboot and then install the update.  After the update seems good you could optionally reconnect the hardware and reboot.

    thanks! yup i managed to install the update after unplugging the air manager (at the top connector, not the bottom no idea why that should make a difference). i'm still getting the air manager error when I start printing, so I guess it has to be a hardware issue...

    I'm also getting this problem, its very frustrating, i have taken the airmanager to bits and it can be only one of 2 things, 1-PCB 2-The fan itself. Both of these look completely fine to me and they are less than 2 years old, Looking at the fan makers website they guarantee their fans for 6 years... is Ultimaker going to help its customers here?

     

    I currently have my fan uninstalled from the machine and control screen.

    Well your reseller should give you support for this kind of thing.  Or you can click that icon in the upper right corner as shown below, then click support, then click "Submit a request".  (all of these in the upper right corner of any Ultimaker.com page).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
