Heatplate and nozzle doesn´t heat.

Recommended Posts

I got within one week a total loss of all mainfunctions of my UM2+ as:

   the heatplate didn´t heatup anymore

   a few days later the nozzle didn´t heatup at all

So no printing doesn´t start anymore, even as curiously the heating works in the advanced maintenance menu.

My idea is, that there may be a defect with the mainboard. Or has somebody a better idea or fixed a problem like this already.

If the servos also don't move then it's the 24V relay also known as K1 which really has no purpose (it was never utilized) so you can short the 24V across it. I did that for one of my UM2s.

But since it sounds like your failures happened slowly I'd say the cause is something else.

Do you know someone who has a volt meter and knows electronics? I would invite them over. The circuitry is pretty simple. Similar to a light switch and a light bulb.

    • "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.
