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:

    • "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.
