hi there,

I accidentally broke one blade of my hotend fan.

would you advise to glue it?

if not, what is the stock fan and where can I buy it?

Many thanks in advance for your help

@dodgecandle you have to replace it because the fan will shake if there is one blade broken. It will cause a bad precision of printing.

@kevin thanks for the advice. I managed to glue it and did a 8 hours print without any issue. I hope it will last.

But where to buy the original spare part?

There is only the cooling fan on Creality3d official store. But you can find the hot end fan on Amazon, it is sold by Comgrow.
