I am having a bit of a nightmare trying to work out what is happening to the fans on my Mega Pro.
First off, the part cooling fan stopped working, then not long after the extruder fan also stopped working.
I have opened up the printer and when it is on, the LED for both these fans is always on. Putting a multimeter to them reads ~12 V.
If I send a
M106 S255 to the part cooling fan, the voltage drops to ~8.5 V.
Tracking the voltage up to the extruder board, it is consistent until the 2 pin connector for FAN0 or FAN2. Both of these return 0 V.
The temperature sensor and heating element are still working as expected though.
I checked what happens on my Chiron (to compare), the fan voltage is 0 until the
M106 S255 is set, then the LED comes on and the voltage goes to ~9 V (which is what I expect to happen).
Has anyone got any idea what might be happening? Is the main board gone? Or is it an issue with just the extruder board?
