The video above shows the following strange behaviour on Ultimaker 2:

 

  1. Flow starts regularly.
  2. After few seconds the feeder goes in iper rotation.
  3. At the same time, the nozzle speed becomes very slow.

 

The problem appeared two days ago (my Ultimaker is 4 months old).

The problem persists with different gcodes.

The problems disappears if I restart the Ultimaker.

The problem comes back after 2/3 prints after restart.

What is it?

    I would make sure the firmware and cura settings match. Make sure it is updated for the correct machine. Also I would clean the feeder and knurled wheel with a wire brush :)

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
