Active Leveling not working

Recommended Posts

Posted · Active Leveling not working

My printer recently flooded because of a leveling issue and I was able to resolve that. Since then it still has not been able to active level, I've manually leveled it several times but each time I try to actively level it the printcores are pushed up as far as they can go and the leveling fails. I've lowered the bed as much as possible and it still does this. What mechanism is it supposed to trip to stop it and how can I fix it? I can print fine if I manually level it, but obviously that is not ideal.

Normally the bed should be in the middle position, so lowering or raising as much as possible is not good.

You can also check if the sensor board looks good and the cables are seated well. You say you printhead was flooded, so it is very likely that something is wrong with the cables.

What kind of printer do you have?  I recommend only doing manual leveling.

 

Anyway - more importantly - don't necessarily blame leveling for your head flood.  Head floods are usually caused when your part is (at that moment) wider than it is tall and it comes loose from the bed.

 

Here is more info about getting parts to "not come loose" - both *what* to do and *why*:

One of the wires was disconnected! I found and fixed it.

Thanks for the feedback!
I'm glad it worked.
