Re: Extruder?

Did you check the current settings for the steppermotor in the firmware? I'm assuming you changed out the steppermotor also.

Re: SE 300 Hot End Leaking (PLA)

Yes, when ever you remove or loosen the nozzle. The nozzle is supposed to be seated to the end of the heatbreak, with the aluminum heater block holding them together. Since aluminum expands more than the brass nozzle, and the stainless steel heat break, they become unseated when it gets to temperatu...

Re: SE 300 Hot End Leaking (PLA)

Out of curiosity, after you reinstalled the nozzle, you did preheat it to around 240, and retightened the nozzle before printing?

Re: Stop during Calibration

Check that the wiring harness is still securely seated in the connector on the hotend,,,,, assuming you "upgraded" to the 280 hotend.

Re: Fresh off the block

At the least it needs to be dried out,,,,, abs absorbs water. 4 to 6 hours in an oven set at 180 F would do wonders. For the initial setting up, calibrating, etc. I would buy a fresh spool.

Re: When (& how) to update firmware.

A good rule of thumb is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Myself, in the beginning, I would update, just to update. Now? Only if I'm trying to solve a problem.

Re: HE280 Rev B Hotend issues

You state that the old hotend heater doesn not come on automatically,,,, Does it come on when the RamBo calls for heat?

When Mosfets fail, they normally fail "On", causing the heater to be on all the time.

Re: heat break stuck

warm the hotend to around 200 C, then re tighten the nozzle before you print.
the aluminum heat block expands more than the nozzle, and heat break, which causes the nozzle to loosen and leak.

Re: ERIS - Clicking Sound, No Filament Coming Out, Unload Doesn't Work :(

I've had to trim the end of the ptfe back a little bit so that the connector would have fresh material to bite into, otherwise I would have a hockey puck form causing my jam. I use a heat break from my V2 hotend, and a razor blade to trim the tube square so it seals.
