Motor Overheating

Motor overheating
Vol. 22 #3, Dec. 1995

If you have problems with overheating of your extruder's drive motor, check that the cooling blower is rotating in the proper direction.

A blower that runs backwards will still blow air in the proper direction, but at a fraction of its rated volume and pressure.
