Brand new hot end not working.

Post by JohnnyRobot » Fri May 09, 2014 10:29 pm

Hey Everyone!

I just got a brand spank'n new hot end today. I was all excited to get started printing and this happened...

RECEIVED: Error:0
RECEIVED: : Extruder switched off. MINTEMP triggered !
RECEIVED: Error:Printer stopped deu to errors. Fix the error and use M999 to restart!. (Temperature is reset. Set it before restarting)
SENT: M105

Temp reads zero and will not set. (Extruder)
Temp reads 15*c and will not set (HBP)

My old hot end works fine... Do I need to change something in the firmware? Any ideas?

Thanks,

John

115.8kohm's when measuring the old one.

No continuity when measuring the new one...

Turns out it was a loose wire in the sensor. A replacement is on the way. The folks at MakerGear got my back.

Thanks a million!
