Side fans and extrusion stopped working

Recommended Posts

Suddenly stopped? Does it wirk with ither gcode? It doesn't restart? Always happens?

One of the cause for it to stop printing could be a sudden micro drop on the electrical supply from the house/workplace. I had once something like that but was because the sdcard was corrupted.

What's the current status?

It's still not working, I've tried it with other gcode files that used to work and they don't, the print head still moves around and the back fan goes, but it doesn't extrude and the side fans don't work, I have no idea where to even start fixing it.

edit: restarting does nothing either

Yes, it was!

the feeder was chewing into the filament, I removed the material, cut off the chewed part and re-entered it however once the filament reached the print head, the knurled wheel kept slipping/jumping back and started to chew on the new filament.

As I only noticed the fans weren't working when it stopped extruding so I imagine they'll be different issues, so how would I stop the wheel slipping?

thanks

Check the feeder tension. It might be too strong.

This is how it looks inside (don't open it is just to explain)

The screw moves the nut that makes the spring be more or less tight. (The indicator on the bottom is maximum pressure and on the top less pressure, don't overdoit on any direction or the small plastic indicator can snap)
