Wrong nozzletemp readings

Recommended Posts

Hi!

When I switched on my Ultimaker 2+ ext. I noticed that the nozzle cooling fan started spinning. Via the Ultimaker menu I figured out that the nozzle temperature was about 20 °C too high (room temperature an bed temperature about 20°C) and showed over 40 °C. Turning off and on again didn't solve the problem, a factory reset did. Has anyone an idea what could have caused the problem?

Thanks!

Hi Ursuppe,

Well, a little hard question to answer, -however, a faulty power supply can make such thing happen-.. Even a spike in the main can do this during startup and give you all kind of strange messages or sensor reading..

So, a reset can be a good thing to do and it also tell you some "strange" things just happened. Just ignore this first one, but do notice in case it happen again.

Thanks.

Torgeir.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
