Noisy fan?

Hi everyone! New Mk3S owner here! Just assembled it on Monday, and it prints great! Only gripe so far is what sounds like a noisy print fan. Any idea on how to mitigate/fix this? It seems that it rattles a bit at lower RPMs. Is that something that I can adjust on the hardware side? Thanks!

I think you mean the nozzlefan. This is a cheap component. Try to give the bearing some oil on the backside. Otherwise replace him. The hotend fan is a noctua longlife product and should run many thousands of hours without any problems.

In my experience on other equipment, a noisy fan can be - over tight or loose when mounted or defective fan. If this is under warranty, use chat and speak to support and see f they will replace it.

Awesome. I'm getting used to the fact that I can actually talk to support in a timely manner (I'm coming from a chinese knockoff brand with the typical terrible/nonexistent service). I'll reach out to chat! I did already both loosen and tighten that fan, and honestly it's only intermittent. Not a deal-breaker, just annoying.
