Print head won't heat up

Recommended Posts

My ultimaker 2 is just a few months old but the print head stopped heating up during a print. I thought it was just clogged so I went to the move material page and that's when I found that the temperature was falling slowly 70/210 then 45/210. I mistakingly pushed the factory reset button and now it's stuck at the "heating up printer head"stage with the temperature indicator light bar not moving. It's too bad it was working perfectly for months.

I would first check the cable connection of the heater cartridge. This is a direct cable without connectors to the electronics board. Take of the cover at the bottom, 2 bolts. Its 2 white cables, you'll see the marking on the board.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
