Serious fan problem

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I Have a very serious problem here. One of my ultimakers one just stopped working randomly. After I disconnected and reconnected the power cord, the printer works again, BUT, the print-head fan is now constantly spinning at maximum speed, I can't control the speed anymore and it turns on at full speed right after I flip the printer's master switch.

Can someone help me with this problem?

Sounds like the darlington pair transistor that controls the fan was shorted. Sometimes they fail closed and the fan runs at full as soon as power is applied.

The question is why? Check for shorts in the cable going from the control board to the hotend especially the connectors.

You will need to unsolder and replace the BD679

Lots of posts on this. See https://www.google.com/search?q=www.google..com&oq=www.google..com&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i65j0l2j5l2.4034j0j4&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=122&ie=UTF-8#q=site:umforum.ultimaker.com++BD679

    • "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.
