Material stuck within material station


Recommended Posts

Posted · Material stuck within material station


I am currently getting Error 54 and 52 on my Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle. I believe PVA filament has broken up in to many pieces inside the material station manifold and at the entrance of the decoupler. My attempts to push through the material with a separate piece of PLA (as per the troubleshooting instructions) have failed. No matter how hard I try to push the PVA through with a line of PLA, the broken pieces inside the material station and in the decoupler cannot be moved. They are really stuck in there good.

With the instructions for error 54/52 not working, and the printer guide specifically saying not to try disassembling the material station or the decoupler, I am out of ideas. Could anyone point me in the right direction as to how to proceed from here?


Thank you.

    I'd disassemble it but that might violate your warranty.  Talk to your reseller immediately.  I suspect only they can give you permission to disassemble it.  What country are you in?

    Hi Elfonerio,

    I contacted my supplier and they provided me with the material station disassembly guide, which I attached here.

    I am going to try using BVOH support material instead, hoping that it will be less likely to break compared to PVA.

    This thread was also helpful (see last picture posted on thread).

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
