Fan printhead, Short Circuit


Recommended Posts

Posted · Fan printhead, Short Circuit

Hello my name is Jeroen from the Netherlands.

I have a Ultimaker 1.

My problem is the Fan at the printhead.

I bought a second fan for some extra cooling.

when i tried to test it I short circuit it.

for a minute or 2 my printer didn't turn on. When it did turn on again my fan wouldn't stop spinning. it won't go off.

For as far as i know the printer stil functions, its only the fan that's "crazy"

Please help me.

greetings,

Jeroen

    You broke Q4. The darlington transistor. It is easy to replace if you have beginner soldering skills. This large 3-pin part is located very close to the fan plug. It is not an expensive part.

    I think that’s true that yow blew the Darlington transistor and you can easily find it as it is black 3 pin devices and moreover you can also find it on the PCB as it is designated as Q4 on the PCB.

      • 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
