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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
