Hi,

I am an owner of Ultimaker 2 for about a half a year. Since a week I have been experiencing problems with cooling fans. I try to turn them on at the start of machine.

I go to the maintanace - > advanced - > set fans speed - > set 100% and nothing happens, the voltage on fan pins are 2.5 V.

Where can I look for reason of this issue.

Best regards

Piotr

    that's what i tought as well. if you set fan speed the gcode regularly checks if fan speed set to zero as this is what usually is the setup in the gcode.

    when i had this problem i waited the print to start and then set the fans and leave it in the set fans menue that way it stays the value that is on the display..

    The transistor responsible for fan's pwm is conducting electricity constantly - w/o depending on settings in controller. I think it is dead.

      • 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
