UM2+ feeder gear keeps slipping off

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+ feeder gear keeps slipping off

The small gear on the feeder motor of my UM2+ keeps slipping off. It is loose enough for me to be able to put it on the motor shaft by hand without all too much force. The problem with it slipping off is that this affects extrusion negatively. Seems it is worn out to the point that it must be replaced?  If so, where can I get a replacement?

Hope someone from Ultimaker will help you...

@SandervG any advise on a way to find an official spare part?

 

Is this the part you need to replace?

If you don't find official replacement part it would be a solution...

Hi @TheRealJoost

 

Just to make sure we're talking about the same part, can you share the partnumber (if you know it), or a picture of the part that you need?

Hoi Sander, thanks for getting in here; its the small gear (11 teeth) on the feeder motor - see image from aliexpress Curven submitted above. An official gear would be nice to get. Any idea why the gear would be slipping off?  Have you guys seen this? I thought gear wear out would be teeth issues, not slow shaft slippin'
