UM2+ temp sensor error after cleaning:(


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+ temp sensor error after cleaning:(

I was preparing to sell my UM2+ and blew out the main board with some compressed air, to knock off the dust. After that, I started getting ER01 about the temp sensor failing. Conveniently, I had a new one on hand, but it still fails. I've also tried swapping in the bed cable and I'm still getting the hotend temp error message.  From the official troubleshooting page, it sounds like something is wrong with my main board. 


Give n that I'm about to try to sell it, I'm torn about what to do. If I sell it, non-working, I expect to get little for it. If I buy a new mainboard and swap it in, I'm sure I could sell it for more, but I'm not sure if that's worth the investment. I could get a cheap Chinese clone board, but that also seems like it might hurt the resale value. What would you do?


Is there a way to diagnose the board and fix it, if I had access to the right equipment?

    Hey @Perchik,

    I'm not sure, but I believe an ER01 could just be a loose connector on your mainboard.
    You can read more about it here: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011640020-ER01-Stopped-temp-sensor

    Can you check if these connectors are connected to the mainboard correctly?

    Oh, I thought I mentioned it in my post. I've wiggled the connectors, reseated everything, checked for continuity from various parts of the connector. 

    The old thermistor and the new one both read about ~108 ohms. I've also tried swapping the bed thermistor with the hotend thermistor (eg, swapping temp1 and temp3) but I still get the ER01.

    Hmm..... Personally I'm a bit lost on what to do next.
    The error than seems to be with the mainboard. 

    Hopefully there is someone else on the forum that can help out. 

    You can also consider contacting one of our resellers near you to see if they can help out.

      • 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
