Error Sensor TEMP


Recommended Posts

Posted · Error Sensor TEMP

Turn printer off and on, go to CONFIGURATION ADVANCED and set the nozzle temperature to maybe 40C. See if it starts out at room temperature (20C?) and moves to 40C. Try pushing on the wires leading into the test head to see if the temperature changes suddenly.

Push the print head to the front of the machine and look from behind - there are 2 cables going into the heater block. One is heater, one is temp probe. Are both still inside the head?

Upgrade to the latest firmware. There is a bug/feature that caused lots of temp probe errors. This is fixed in 15.01.

Also sometimes the heater block is touching the fan shroud and when the fans come on full (several layers from the bottom) the heater doesn't have enough power to keep the nozzle at goal temperature. Check that you can manually set the nozzle to 230C with the fans at 100% (do this by doing PRINT and then choose any print job and then immediately TUNE and stay in the tune menu so it won't start printing. Then set the nozzle temp manually and the fans manually).
