Help: Extruder not working anymore

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

my extruder motor is not working anymore.

- The extruder motor and cables are OK. Hooked the connector to another axis output and that works fine.

- The stepper is also OK. Changed the stepper with the one on a working axis and that looks OK as well.

- Tried another motor on the Extruder output, but the motor does not move either.

I used the Ulticontroller to manually move the axis.

Any ideas what the problem is?

:shock: I feel a bit stupid now......

Heated the head in order to get rid of the filament in the nozzle. Then I calibrated the bed height a I guess that the head cooled down during that operation.

Will try it again shortly and now keep an eye on the temperature.

Thanks Sander :oops:
