Posted · Replacing hot end sensor

I'm trying to replace the temp sensor on my UM2, and step 7 says to raise the bed. The problem is I can't get past the "ERROR-STOPPED: Temp Sensor" message to access the controls. Is it possible to force my way past this error message so I can raise the bed?

    The guide doesn't mention it, but I would only make modifications to my printer with the power off. With power off, the motors are disengaged and you can move all parts freely around. Even the bed can be moved up and down when you place your hand(s) on the rear of the bed, close to the Z-spindle.

    Hi Carlo,


    Thanks for the quick response. Your suggestion is probably safer all around. Don't need to short anything out. 🙂

    I'll shut the power off and manually raise the bed.
