What is the voltage of the print head fan?

Post by ModernGnome on Wed May 04, 2016 11:38 pm

Hi fellow Root/Root Plus owners. What is the correct replacement part for the (40x40x10 mm) print head fan? In particular, I need to know the correct voltage. Is it a 12v part or a 24v part?

I do not know for certain, but every fan of that size I have used has been 12V.

I'm so glad you asked... that turns out to be the problem with my printer. Support is having problems getting a replacement.
If you remove the fan, you will see the specs:
Maker: Shengshida
Type: Brushless DC fan
Model: SD4010L1S
DC: 19V .05A

SO...
anyone know where to get one?

EDIT: It's 1.6cm square, so 16mm
I'm having a hard time finding one

Jeez, 19v is such an oddball value. Thanks!

first link was out of stock, second link: Today £5.98 for 3 comes to $8.93 U.S.
I'm getting 3, just in case.

Thanks for the info. Now we know. I am surprised that with as may times as I have had the fan off I never noticed the label.

hehehe. I actually ASKED the tech guy which fan they used, and then he told me and said it's on the label in the back. I just never noticed because when I take the fan off, I try to keep it aligned so I can put it back correctly.

So, you have the ROOT? rather than the ROOT PLUS?

I sheepishly admit that I have been running a 12V replacement fan exactly like the one shown above on my Root recently. It seems to be working (and sounding) just like the original. Standard disclaimers apply.

So the root plus originally had a higher voltage fan, of carrying voyages no less?

I still don't have my replacement fans.... apparently they will start shipping again on the 28th of June?

Where did you get your 12 V fan?
