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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
