Nozzle heat issue

Recommended Posts

Ultimaker Classic, w heated bed...

I have an unusual problem that has plagued me for days.

The observed symptoms are after a few layers the filament feed starts slowing to eventually no feed over one layer.

The temperature (on LCD) seem OK for Nozzle and Bed (245, 100) but as the nozzle travels across existing tracks it grinds through (not melts through), suggesting the nozzle temperature is incorrect. Looking at the filament at the feed mechanism shows a grinding of the teeth on the filament.

I have:

- changed Nema 17 motors (thinking the motor may have lost power)

- assessed and cleared extruder as functioning

- changed the circuit board on the hot end

- changed the K type thermocouple

I did not have a spare heater element to verify this part. Does it look like the heater element has gone? Why would the nozzle temperature be misreporting?

Thanks,

Nic

    • "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.
