UM Orig+ 1st assembly problems (?)

Posted · UM Orig+ 1st assembly problems (?)

Hello. I am completely new to 3D printing as such, but very motivated.

I've just enjoyed assembling an Ultimaker Original Plus. I uploaded the newest Firmware, which went without problems via Cura.

 

I have used Cura Version 15.04 to use the bed levelling wizard. After going through the bed levelling process, Cura makes the printer draw a first figure (square). I notice two things: The bed is not heated up (the nozzle is heated up, to 210 degrees for my silver metalllic ultimaker plate), and the feeder motor doesnt seem to be moving at all. No filament is pushed through.

 

Also:

Heating up the bedplate doesnt work (Doesnt work from the controller,using Menu --> Prepare --> Preheat PLA Bed)

Getting the fan into motion doesnt work (From controller: Menu --> Control --> Temperature --> Fan Speed)

Getting the feeder motor to run doesnt seem to work at all. The motor itself seems to be healthy. I plugged the feeder motor into the board socket of the z-motor, and it worked fine.

 

Is there something trivial I might have missed?

 

Thanks for your time.

Jakob
