Posted · print doesnt stick to the plate / under extrusion ? UMO

I fixed the first problem (hurrah) onwards to the next problem.

I am using 3mm PLA and only a stream om 1mm comes out and a very little stream.

I think my extruder is not 'pushing' the material in ? I dont know how to fix this.

As a result the fillament does not stick to the plate (I think)

Ive tried some different heats and speeds (Im using the blue tape) but still nothing

any advice ?

Should I clean the nozzle maybe ? I would like to rule out other options first before I have to take apart the machine..

Thanks for any help

    are you able to extrude manually, turn the wooden gear in the back by hand so the plastic runs out smoothly? Did you close the extruder on the back properly, black lever to the bottom? Does the black wheel in the extruder on the back turn freely?

    Hello Peggy

    Yes It works manually and more comes out. I did close it properly but I dont think it works 'automatically' :-(

    the motor should be doing something right ? So i should check if the little black wheel is turning ?

    thanks for your help

    'sigh' I wish I could just get this thing to work instead of having wasted a ton of money on something that has never worked properly ...what a disappointment this has been from the beginning

    So I am watching the black wheel but this is not doing anything. Could the motor be broken ?

    Ive tried to look at what cable goes where but the manual is not idiot prrof in the sense that it does not show the ultimaker I have...

    do you maybe now if I can go somewhere to get some help ?

    thanks again

    Hi, did you throw your printer out of the window yet ? Hope not... is there any progress?

    is this manual the right one for you? https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/235-assembly

    can you look at this video and try to extrude some material at the end;
