Error extruder switched off MAX TEMP !

Recommended Posts

I am currently making my own 3D printer using a Rambo 1.3 board.

After taking apart an old MakerBot Replicator, I used the part from that printer.

I am using Cura and I plugged everything in powered it up and downloaded all the software I need to.

I pressed print to USB and an error sign came up

"Error Extruder Switched off MAX TEMP ! Reached"

I tried to research this and it said to switch my thermocouple's, which I did, and I still got the errors.

Please Help!!!!!

The UM has a AD595 tiny circuit board on the print head combined with a thermocouple. Is that what you have do you think? You should ask people in the makerbot forums (oh - right - they block this kind of post, :???: ).

Well is there a circuit board to go with the thermocouple? Or is it maybe a thermistor instead? If it's a thermistor measure the resistance at room temperature and at say around boiling temperature and then find out which thermistor in the set of thermistor tables match the part you have.

    • "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.
