    I think you need to do 2 things.  Or maybe just one of them:

    1) I think you may have put the "plus" firmware (UM2+) on a UM2.  Double check that you put the right firmware on your printer.  The UM2 has a black feeder.  The UM2+ has a white feeder.

    2) Do a "FACTORY RESET".  It's in the menu system somewhere accessed on the front of the printer.  I can explain more about this if you want.  


    After doing those 2 things most of your issues should go away but possibly not all.  You might want to remove the glass for now until it seems like things are working although I've had the glass slam into the nozzle and never gotten a scratch.

      • 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.
