hello Doctor,

I hava an error message on an Ultimaker 2 saying : "z endstop stuck or broken" and that i shhould contact ultimaker support.

i started having problems last week, 3 prints in a row skiped a layer and ended up like a ball of hairs.

also started to make weird bang noises where i couldnd define where it came from, the bed falling down a few layers in middle of a print made me think of the Zaxis, i could hear like sand noise in the 2 big bars on z, so i opened from Under and cleaned them, also the two big ballbearing z.

i wiggled the bed to rebuild it the right way, hoping it would work.

That's when i got the error message "endstop stuck/broke" and it makes terrible noises.

I tested the endstop throught a circuit with a led, and the led goes on and off no problem.

could it be the board ?

I have a few clients waiting for their orders, please help me quickly.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
