nozzle suddenly hitting print bed - with probing failed error message

Recommended Posts

Posted · nozzle suddenly hitting print bed - with probing failed error message

Hello I hope someone has had some experience with this and can help me out.


I have an artillery sidewinder, I changed the nozzle to 1mm and to be clear IT WAS WORKING FINE FOR OVER A MONTH.

I had a print stoppage because of filament runout (it has a filament runout sensor).  I did not resume print and just changed the filament.


When I tried the next print, the nozzle slams into the bed when I try to auto level it, home, print.  

THe probe extends and stays extended when it touches the bed and the whole nozzle hits the bed and pushes it down,

then raises and lowers again

and then theres grinding noises and it fails,

with a "probing failed" error message.


It was working fine so I cant imagine it's a code issue or even an offset issue, but what do I know.

Just all of a sudden after the runout stoppage it went haywire.


Some please please help!!!!
