Re: Extruder problem

Totally frustrated, can't see where on the board anything was burned out. All fuses are fine, all stepper motors (except the extruder motor) are working fine. The printer runs as if everything is all right. I wonder since the board is set up for 2 extruders if I can run one extruder on the second pl...

Re: Extruder problem

As far as I know any drivers are on the Arduino board. Don't think there is a way to swap the motor driver. BUT I am in no way knowledgeable about these things. Just an old fart trying to get into 3D printing.

Re: Extruder problem

I have to go out of town for the next 5 days, I'll hopefully have some answers/ suggestions from the forum by then, and I can get back to printing.

Thnx

Re: Extruder problem

Hi Stefan

I am afraid it maybe the board since I bought the motor from Seemecnc and it is an exact same model. I swapped out a stepper motor from the X axis and still does not work

Not sure where on the board I should look for a short.

Re: Extruder problem

Hi Stefan. The stepper does not spin at all, even when I ask it to spin. The hotend gets hot and comes up to temperature. This printer was seccond hand and the previous owner used aluminum tape to cover the wire joints, therefore the short, which blew the fuse. I have remove all aluminum tape and re...

Extruder problem

I experienced some problems with my Rostock V2 when I blew a fuse due to shorting out the thermistor. I replaced it and I had problems with the hotend getting plugged, then the extruder stopped working. I ordered a new extruder motor and it still does not work. -The 3 stepper motors on the tower wor...
