I burned a 240 smd resistor on my board that controls the hotend fan, i don't know why this happened or how much of the board was damaged but visually it is just the resistor.
The damaged resistor causes the hotend fan to be stuck on, everything else work besides the fan on/off.
I also considered replacing the board with the silent version from gigdigit.com but it is out of stock and was a little expensive, was wondering if the silent board was worth it or if it was a waste of time.
Thank you -Merrick
Have people done the E3D upgrade on their Mini? I'm curious, particularly, about partial versus full replacements. I know the E3D heatsink/tube is something people have done with the bracket but I'm also curious about a total replacement. Is is possible? What part would I buy?
And in both cases, what happens to the cooling fan and shroud? Does the upgrade involve no longer having a fan blowing on the freshly extruded plastic? Is there another mod to get that back? Or does it just stop being necessary with the E3D in place?
