Print suddenly retracts filament way too much and fast mid print.

Posted · Print suddenly retracts filament way too much and fast mid print.

Hey there. My first time on this forum so hope someone can help me 😄


My problem is that sometimes my print suddenly stops and retracts the filament way too much and way too fast. It tries to move the filament to the nozzle afterwards, but the filament isn't touching the extruder anymore... Then the print continues...


I used to use Cura 4.13.0, and it used to help by restarting Cura... But then I used Cura 5.0 and 2 out of 2 prints had that problem...

I've tried Google for solutions, but I just can't find any similar issues...


Hope someone can help me here 😄 

Printer: Ender 5 (Not stock firmware)

Octoprint: Yes

Cura profile: Standard 


Best regards, Christian
