2nd option for fan cleaner?

This came from a conversation over in Everything Else: 3M Electronic Degreaser Shortage? - #5 by deirdrebeth

Any chance of this getting the :glowforge: testing and seal of approval as a 2nd option to the 3M which has been having stocking issues (like everything else) recently?


What about This one?

Thank you so much for the details. I’m looking into it now. As soon as I have more information I’ll let you know.


Pip -any info on acceptable replacements/alternates?

I don’t see why you’d want to spray anything into the fan. I know that the 3M Novec product caused a white film buildup on the fins of my fan that just made it spin unbalanced and get louder and louder over time. When I replaced that Glowforge I never used the degreaser again. 3 years later, my current fan is working perfectly.

I poke a nylon bottle brush through the back grate and through the fan blades that way to knock off all the dirt every month or so. I have a GF Pro, the heatsink on the other side of the fan presents no challenges accessing it from the back instead.

I’m still looking into this. I don’t an update quite yet, but I’ll be sure to update this thread as soon as I do.

I only manually clean, but a lot of folks are very fond of the sprays - and the 3M has been hard to get all pandemic so trying to get options out there for other folks who want to obey the rules, but also use a spray!
