    I received my New Refurbished Robo3D R1+ last Wednesday, I love it and want to keep it, I had an issue with a clogged Nozzle, no bid deal used the Quick Release feature and heated the nozzle up and pulled the broken filament out, then i noticed the larger fan move, and it was missing one of the 2 screws, and the other one was loose so i attempted to tighten it up but the hole is stripped out, then on the little fan 2 of them must be stripped out as they will not tighten either..

    Point is anyone know what size larger screw I can use for both? i don't have an assortment to try out or compare to is why..

    Thanks in advance for any help..

    The large fan (part cooler) only has 2 screws at the front that hold it in. The little fan if the screws are stripped in the housing isn't a big deal as you can print a new fan holder or I can send you.

    on the large fan both are stripped i put a larger screw in but the other needs an even larger one apprantly.. more worried about the larger one dropping the screw, is that replaceable? the small one has 2 good screws and 2 bad ones..

    How did you break your fan holder?, they should be able to send me one i would think, but if you could send me one that would be cool also.
