Print head problems?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print head problems?

Hello,

I have a 17 day old ultimaker 2.

When i unpacked it there was no obvious defects other then marks on the fan (it didn't stop the fan preforming so ignored it).

The last item i printed was last sunday in ABS

Today i'm using some PLA and as the print started the print after the change i noticed the fan shroud scraping against the glass and the head not even close.

I stopped the print to have a closer look to find that the shroud had warped, damaged wires on the fan at the back and some plastic has been leaking around the heater block.

 

 

I have no idea what has caused this, any ideas as to what has happened and how to fix it would be amazing.

 

regards

I have a hard time imagining a printing scenario where the printer could do that to itself to be honest.

I would unscrew the fans and the metallic bracket that holds them in place. Then you can bend the metallic bracket back to its original shape.
