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.

    • 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.
