Fan Screws rattling

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I've noticed that the printer head fan screws vibrate and make a fair bit of noise when the printer is in use. There is no apparent affect on print quality.

Does anyone have any advice on alternative screws, use of threadlock etc. to eliminate this effect?

cheers :smile:

UM Original or UM2? On my UM2 one screw was rattling. I just removed it and have only 3 screws for that fan and it has been fine since.

 

UM2. I did this :-) not long after I first had it.

I've found that the other screws gradually worked loose. I'll have a tinker to see what I can do.

Thanks for the replies
