  1. Oke, that sounds plausible! thank you very much for your time and effort! If I'm correct the heater cartridge is 18V right? I will order a new heater cartridge and see if it will work again. I will let you now if it works!
  2. I measured the resistance of the heater cartridge (the two wite insulated wires) and it is 0.03 ohm. When I disconnected the heater cartridge and wanted to preheat the printer the temperature setting went up and nothing happened as expected indeed. I hope this helps.
  3. I didn't think about that indeed. Thanks for your help, I will keep you updated!
  4. Yes, it is definitely an 'old' printer and it has worked fine for me the last couple of years without any major problem. But after finishing a print I wanted to preheat for another print and suddenly the printer shuts off. I didn't do to, or modify anything on the printer. Personally I don't think it's a power supply issue since the printer can be switched on, the problem occurs when I want to increase the temperature. This afternoon I will measure the resistance in the heater cartridge, do you have any expierence with that? Can you suggest me some cables/connectors that I should measure?
  5. I have a UMO, without heated bed. With the preheating I'm referring to the option preheat PLA/ABS. Basically to warm up the printer. As I mentioned in my previous post it also happens during manually warming up so to me it seems like sort of a protection which the_shire suggested.
  6. Thanks for your response. No, everything is original and i didn't add anything. I also think it is going into some kind of protection. Today I also tried to manually heat the printer but that also doesn't help. Do you have any suggestions regarding the over current protection? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, When I want to preheat my Ultimaker Original the complete system shuts off. The display turns off and I have to wait a couple of minutes before I can turn it on again. Does anyone have an idea why this happens? Thanks in advance! Tom
  8. Thanks for the reply's! I also submitted a ticket and it all will be arranged, I will receive new X, and Y - motors from Ultimaker. Cheers!
  9. Dear all, I have a question relating the X, and Y - motor. I think I received two wrong motors with my Ultimaker Original kit. All the motors with the long wires have a flattened axis (see the attached pictures). Does anyone of you know if I can still use them as X, and Y- motors or should I really have the round axis instead? If the latter is the case does anyone have a suggestion with which step I can continue my build? That would be really helpful!
