Extruder motor not moving


Recommended Posts

Posted · Extruder motor not moving


The extruder motor on my Ultimaker original plus is not rotating. However it works when plugged into the X-axis port.

i am using the Main board 2.1.4 that comes with the printer.

can anyone suggest as to why it is not working ?

    Marlin disables the E axis when the nozzle is below a certain temperature (I think typically 170C). You can disable this feature temporarily with the gcode:


    Or you can simply heat up the nozzle to 180C.
