Extruder not running...
June 27, 2018 11:32AM
Ok this is what I have:

Arduino Mega2560
Ramps 1.4
5 - NEMA 17 Hi Torque motors driven by A4988s
3 - Mechanical endstop switches

Here's my problem, my extruder motor will not move when connected to E0 but will move when connected to and axis position on the board. I have swapped Ramps, A4988s and Motors.

Here's my config.h file:

//============================= Getting Started =============================

 * Select which serial port on the board will be used for communication with the host.
 * This allows the connection of wireless adapters (for instance) to non-default port pins.
 * Serial port 0 is always used by the Arduino bootloader regardless of this setting.
 * :[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
#define SERIAL_PORT 0

 * This setting determines the communication speed of the printer.
 * 250000 works in most cases, but you might try a lower speed if
 * you commonly experience drop-outs during host printing.
 * You may try up to 1000000 to speed up SD file transfer.

 * This device allows one stepper driver on a control board to drive
 * two to eight stepper motors, one at a time, in a manner suitable

//======================== Thermal Runaway Protection =======================

 * Thermal Protection provides additional protection to your printer from damage
 * and fire. Marlin always includes safe min and max temperature ranges which
 * protect against a broken or disconnected thermistor wire.
 * The issue: If a thermistor falls out, it will report the much lower
 * temperature of the air in the room, and the the firmware will keep
 * the heater on.
 * If you get "Thermal Runaway" or "Heating failed" errors the
 * details can be tuned in Configuration_adv.h

//============================= Z Probe Options =============================
// @section probes

// See [marlinfw.org]

 * Enable this option for a probe connected to the Z Min endstop pin.

 * Enable this option for a probe connected to any pin except Z-Min.
 * (By default Marlin assumes the Z-Max endstop pin.)
 * To use a custom Z Probe pin, set Z_MIN_PROBE_PIN below.
 *  - The simplest option is to use a free endstop connector.
 *  - Use 5V for powered (usually inductive) sensors.
 *  - RAMPS 1.3/1.4 boards may use the 5V, GND, and Aux4->D32 pin:
 *    - For simple switches connect...
 *      - normally-closed switches to GND and D32.
 *      - normally-open switches to 5V and D32.
 * WARNING: Setting the wrong pin may have unexpected and potentially
 * disastrous consequences. Use with caution and do your homework.

 * Probe Type
 * Allen Key Probes, Servo Probes, Z-Sled Probes, FIX_MOUNTED_PROBE, etc.
 * Activate one of these to use Auto Bed Leveling below.

 * The "Manual Probe" provides a means to do "Auto" Bed Leveling without a probe.
 * Use G29 repeatedly, adjusting the Z height at each point with movement commands
 * or (with LCD_BED_LEVELING) the LCD controller.

 * A Fix-Mounted Probe either doesn't deploy or needs manual deployment.
 *   (e.g., an inductive probe or a nozzle-based probe-switch.)

 * Z Servo Probe, such as an endstop switch on a rotating arm.
//#define Z_ENDSTOP_SERVO_NR 0   // Defaults to SERVO 0 connector.
//#define Z_SERVO_ANGLES {70,0}  // Z Servo Deploy and Stow angles

 * The BLTouch probe uses a Hall effect sensor and emulates a servo.
//#define BLTOUCH
  //#define BLTOUCH_DELAY 375   // (ms) Enable and increase if needed

 * Enable one or more of the following if probing seems unreliable.
 * Heaters and/or fans can be disabled during probing to minimize electrical
 * noise. A delay can also be added to allow noise and vibration to settle.
 * These options are most useful for the BLTouch probe, but may also improve
 * readings with inductive probes and piezo sensors.

I have been stuck on this for a week. It worked after I installed and adjusted Voltages on each driver. But it just stopped working after I had to replace thermistor due to a short.  Extruder is set at about 545mV and rest are around 521mV. Can someone please have a look and advise on what my problem might be. TIA D 

P.s. I had to delete most of the config.h file I had copied, but I left the parts in about machine settings relative to my problem (I think). Thanx

This is just a note:

You cannot Extrude unless the hot-end temperature is above 170C. This is controlled by the software to prevent cold extrusion / Damage.

I’ll go back through the code to see if I had enabled something by accident.

Solved. Thank you for the help. That's exactly what it was. When I had a shorted thermistor and was reading 959C. This let the motor run. To test this, I set min extrude temp to 20 and yeehaa. Now to try to get it to print.
