"un-original" fans not working

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I had a crash with the Ultimaker 2, which ruined both the fans. I ordered a set of fans from eBay since the support took so long to reply to my mail.

The fans were 30 x 30 x 10mm 12v 0,08A, the same as the ones that came with the Ultimaker 2:

Ive tried to connect them, but they dont start (I have made sure the fan speed is at 100%, and testet different speeds).

I have also measured the voltage to be about 19 V, but still no movement.

I dont have any power source that I could test the fans with at the moment.

I also may add that the original fan wires that runs along side the feed tube is absolutely garbage. Thin as a hair.

Have anyone else encountered problems with un-original fans?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
