UM3 Stuck Printcores

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 Stuck Printcores

Hey All,

 

I was after some advice my UM3 printcores are stuck. I had a massive pla disaster. Which covered the printhead in pla. I got it all cleaned off and the machine works fine. BUT i cant get the print cores out.They can move up and down just fine but will not click out no matter how hard i compress and pull.

 

Any thoughts?

The cause was the print not sticking I was just a bit unlucky. The link just showed how to remove the cable is there another for the whole print head?
