Extruder 2 heater turns off

Posted · Extruder 2 heater turns off

I am using Cura 3.6.0 with a Geeetech A10M.  Dual extruders single hot end.  When I cut with Cura using extruder #1 life is good.  But if I cut with extruder #2, the skirt will print from extruder #1 at 205 deg.  Near the end of the skirt temp shifts to 190deg, the end print temp.  At the completion of the skirt the temp turns off, the head goes to the purge position (no purge block in the cut) returns to print location and prints with extruder #2 until too cool to extrude.

I can with in the machine’s firmware mix colors as long as I cut with #1 not #2. 

I am a newbie and the 100s of settings in Cura have me baffled.  Any suggestions as to where to start.

 

Thanks

Rich
