Is my print core totaled?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Is my print core totaled?

I was printing a 2-tone PLA print when I noticed my AA print core in Extruder 2 was not moving. So I cancelled the print, and did a print core cleaning with some cleaning filament. During the Hot Pull, the fan door broke open, and the brass plate was dangling free. I turned off my printer, and removed the print core, and now the nozzle is dangling by a wire.

 

Is there any way I can fix this? Where can I find a replacement AA print core? Ultimaker's website is not easy to find things to buy!

    Hi,

    it looks like the heatbreak of your printcore is broken. There is no known fix, you need a new printcore.

    Your official local resellers can be found here:

    ...and as a side note: your silicone nozzle cover needs to be replaced, and there are al lot of material strings inside the printhead which should be removed, especially from the front fan.

     

    Regards
