Hi all,

The feeder motor of my UM2 not spin well, first of all, it seems cannot move well, then it spins wrong direction when remove and insert material.

Following is the veido for your reference:

When remove material, motor spin clockwise, then I pushed insert material button, it spins anti clockwise.

 

This printer not connect with PC, we print file only via SD card, I am not sure if SD card affect the firmware or not.

    Hi

    If you have dismantled the feeder and reassembled it you have possibly put it back in such a way that the filament is inserted on the wrong side of the shaft.

    Owen, thanks for your reply, yes I reassembled the feeder before, and I am sure it at correct direction, since it worked appropriate for quite long time, before the above problem happened.

    I would like you to install the latest Ultimaker 2 firmware through Cura, just to be sure.

    Then do a factory reset, if any values have been changed they are back to normal.

    If both of these option have no solution, your motor is probably broken.

    Thanks a lot, I installed the latest Ultimaker 2 firmware and did the factory reset, but the motor still not work well, if the motor broken, what should I do then? Should I fix the motor on my own?

    You would be best off contacting your reseller, describing your situation and request a new motor. Good luck, and let us know how it goes!

      • 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.
