- The extruder works fine when the bed is stationary, but stops as soon as any of the other motors are active
- The extruder cools down spontaneously, though significantly more often when the heated bed is on. The extruder either cools and/or maintains a temperature less than the set temperature
- When the extruder is heating up, it often exceeds the set temperature by +15F. As it extrudes, extruder temperatures drop rapidly ie -10F for a small 5mm sample
- The heated bed doesn't always turn on when prompted. Tugging on the cables has not had any effect. It works when it wants to
We're using Pronterface to print. ReplicatorG connected and sensed temperatures correctly, but hung when estimating the build time. With Pronterface, the printer appears to follow the motions of printing, but does not extrude simultaneously.
We have a few theories:
- The included PSU was DoA
- Poor or incorrect wiring
- Software issue or misuse
Unfortunately, we're not as experienced as we would like when it comes to electronics. Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem can be and where we should start looking?
