Using your fan

Once you have connected your fan, by default it will be on whenever your Raspberry Pi is running. You can configure it to turn on only when your Raspberry Pi reaches a temperature that you choose.

Using a recent version of Raspberry Pi OS, first update to retrieve any recent changes to the operating system:

  1. Open the Terminal, either from the Start menu (click the Raspberry Pi icon in the top left corner) or by pressing Control + Alt + T.
  2. Type sudo apt update and then, when the update has finished, type sudo apt full-upgrade.

Then open the Raspberry Pi Configuration tool:

  1. Click on the Raspberry Pi icon in the top left corner and select Preferences then Raspberry Pi Configuration.
  2. Select the Performance tab.
  3. Next to Fan, click Enabled.
  4. If you have connected your fan as shown above, the default of 14 for Fan GPIO does not need to be changed.
  5. Select the Fan Temperature at which you want your fan to turn on. The default is 80°C, which will stop the Raspberry Pi throttling on difficult tasks without having the fan on all the time.
