Elekslaser 2.5 fan not spinning
I have a Elekslaser 2.5 A3 that I bought from Banggood and received it April 7.
I assembled it and noticed when the laser is on (burning) the fan on the laser is just not rotating just jerking a little. I found a topic on http://benboxlaser.us/index.php/topic,71.msg643.html#msg643
and that person had the same problem. There is a picture of the wiring of two laser fans and mine is wired like the one on the left which appears to be wrong. Can I get a replacement for it or how can I repair it?
If you manually spin the fan does it move freely, if the laser is on when you do this it may start working OK.
The fan will spin a half a rev. but will not continue.
Thanks for the reply.
Is it a TTL laser, with 3 wires?
If not and it's only 2 wires are you running max power on the laser? If not, the PWM may not be enough to run the fan.
@Zax I took the fan off to check how it was wired. As I stated above the pictures in the link led me to believe it was wired wrong. Today I screwed the fan back down and it is working fine. I believe one of the wires was hitting the fan and stopping it from running.
Zax, thanks for your help I certainly appreciate it and I will be trying your T2laser program once I get my feet wet.
Good to hear it was simple, guess the quality control missed that
