Freaking out right now. I was in clean mode and the fan just stopped spinning. Has anyone had this happen before? I put a request in with glowforge but have heard nothing and I have orders to get out Any help would be amazing .
Sorry, I can’t help you…but which fan…exhaust or air assist? Anyone else who is more knowledgeable than I will need to know that.
Many of us have bypassed the internal fan with an inline booster fan because of the drastic noise reduction. I couldn’t be happier with no more screaming exhaust fan.
The larger external fan can move the same amount of air turning much slower, that = quieter.
So worst case is you make your machine practically silent in comparison.
Where do I find one? I cant use this like it is
Amazon is where most come from.
Use the forum search function for “inline fan” to see how others did it.
Mine quit working about three years ago (after 2 years of ownership). I removed it and cut out the grate, use an external inline duct fan. Since then, they changed their policy which now make my machine ineligible for replacement, but at 5 years, I’ll just consider it a write-off.
