I did the cleaning procedure for print core #2 on an S5. When I performed the cold pull the keeper for the bowden tube came out. After putting it back togther the lift switch won't lock in the forward position with the bowden tube in place and I get the error that the detected difference between the print heads exceeds realistic values and the printer stops.

    Have you tried to remove the collet and put it back, maybe that helps?


    If not here is a video of disassembling the print head, maybe it helps to find the problem.

    I put it back in and the bowden tube will lock in place but if it is in place the lift switch won't lift the extruder #2 and lock in the forward position. There may be a small tube that goes under the keeper but I can't find a parts diagram to show how it is assembled. Extruder #1 looks as though it has a small tube under the keeper that isn't on #2.

      • 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
