The V6 HotEnd heatsink fan is much larger than the stock TAZ 5 fan, it also runs on a higher voltage. As such this connector '''must be moved''' on the control board otherwise the fan will not spin, potentially casing hard-to-fix filament jams. The steps for doing this are as follows:

The first step is to remove the old TAZ 5 head. This simply requires the connector to be disconnected then the single hex bolt at the top of the head to be removed. Once this is done the head should slide out of its bracket.

The extruder has a different gear ratio than the stock TAZ 5 head. The extruder speed must thus be changed in the TAZ 5 control panel.

First press the selector wheel button, then scroll to '''Configuration''' then '''Advanced Settings''' and finally down to '''Esteps/mm'''. Change this value to '''456.0'''. Note this can be off by ±0.2mm as the wheel will not always allow for precise selection.

In your slicer (eg. Cura) you must ensure that 'Extruder Steps per mm' is set to zero. This will prevent any override of your Esteps/mm setting. This should be zero by default but it may be worth checking.
