Extruder motor not working
December 16, 2015 01:30AM
The extruder motor is not working, the stepper diver ,stepper motor and the wires are ok. I have tried switching the stepper drivers , the wires and even the motors but none seems to work. I have also re istalled the firmware.
Is there a problem with board or the extruder stepper driver port ??
please help

what does the temperature read?

If that’s not correct, it will disable the extruder, it also will not allow cold extrusion...

Best to start with a pc connected and run something like pronterface, other applications can hide important messages
Get the lcd your having issues with working later... after basic functionality is working.

Do you know about the setting the POT on the stepper driver? This set the current limits.
