Nozzle temperature sensor functionality test Error01


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Nozzle temperature sensor functionality test Error01

After some trouble with my Ultimaker 2(+) having unclear stops during printing I was looking for way's to find out what it caused.

The problem reveiled itself with an Error01 Temperature sensor and a halt during printing. OR it did just stopped with printing, no message just the last printing status vissible but the printer was 'hanging' in that situation. So I could not confirm if it was the temperature sensor only or for example the mainboard having isseus. 

The regular described procedure of Ultimaker did not help me but seemed to confirm that the sensor was working fine. Most of the time, the printer, turned on and not running a job, did not show any errors or halts, the problems occurs when the printer is in printing modus.


When you don't have electronic tools, multimeters or so, this is a simple way to roughly check a bad connectivity of the sensor to the mainboard.

Hook the printer up to a computer (USB) running Cura and select the monitor tab. When the printer is connected you can see the bed and nozzle temperature.

These valeus should reflect the actual temperatures. 

Now gently move the printer head around the printable square by hand, bend the bowden tube a little, move the sleeved wiring in several directions. Watch in the mean time the temperature valeu on the computer screen. I pulled also a little at the rear of the sensor where it appeared to have this signal break.

In my case, suddenly the temperature was far too low, or extreem high (the cooler starts to run instantly as well). Then you can find a spot where it happens. In that case you can conclude that you have a bad cable (the sensor is still OK but unable to pass through good valeus) and you need to replace the sensor and cable together (as it is assembled as one piece).


So take your advantage with this procedure to find the cause of the problem you face.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
