Hello at all,

I'm pretty new in 3d printing and I don't have that much experience, so I hope you can help me.

I have a Ultimaker 2 (Ext+) and after switching the main board from an extended version ,there are two extruder connectors, to another one with just one extruder connector the extruder motor suddenly unloads when it should loads and vice versa.

The reference number of the mainboards are the same it's: Ultimainboard rev.  2.1.4


Could the problem be that the mainboard is not the right one?


I hope you have some ideas 🙂

    Sounds like you have a firmware miss match..
    Ultimaker 2/Extended & Ultimaker 2+/Extended  - are not the same machines firmware wise.. the feeder direction was reversed etc.. 
    Make sure you load the correct firmware for your model of machine.

      • 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.
