Ender 3 V2 hot end fan noise
My printer is about 1 month old and the hot end fan has started making noise. It sounds like it is rubbing during start up but that usually went away after a 10 or so seconds. Now it is intermittent. Any thoughts? Or do I have a bad fan and need a new one?
I have a cr10s pro and the same problem. I haven't figured out the real issue but I guess it may be the unstable input voltage when the printer gets started. Not impacts the printing, but I'll let you know after the investigation.
I have the same issue. It really whines for a while when I turn it on. Mine is only 5 days old.
Same here. Purchased on 1/1/21 and started making noise about a week or so ago. I sent an email to Creality on 1/24 and another 1/26, but no response from the manufacturer. I'm beginning to think we are on our own once purchased. I thought I was buying into a respectable company. I've included a video.
Same here on a ender 6
same here, my ender 3 v2 hotend is very loud, i think i have a bad piece of printer from wrong series
I replaced my Ender 3Pro fan also. Then the hotend fan started getting noisy. Sounds like bad bearings in these fans.
Are there decent quality, direct replacements for these fans?
Same here sounds like the fan bearing is worn already, 1.5 months it has lasted.
Update. Creality got back to me. Said it's not their problem since I didn't buy it from them. I contacted the vendor (Microcenter) and they said they don't know what to do. So now I have a month old printer making noises and no one wants to help. Even here, Creality is useless and offers no suggestions. 😒
For $14 I bought a set of fans. OEM Creality. Still wondering if there are better quality replacements.
@z0mbierecruiter¨........Unfortunately I have the same problem after about 5 hours of printing
My printer came in yesterday and every time I turn the printer on the fan is very loud for about 10 seconds then stops. Glad I’m not the only one experiencing this!
@Hi All. If you got the noise from the hot end fan when your printer started. That suppose to be the sleeve bearing is lacking grease. Changing a new fan may have the same issues as well. Not sure about that.
But you can try to disassemble the fan and give it some grease.
@kevin what grease did you use? I have the noise from the extruder fan and would like to fix it! Also, would you use the same grease on the Y axis threaded rod?
@st3wrat I use vaseline 😆 😆 Cheap and easy to get. Yes, also put some on Y-axis threaded rod.
