I was attempting to correct my Ender 5's steps/mm with Pronterface and long story short in my haphazard sleep deprived state, entered in a few commands wrong. And now my Z axis movement is extremely limited and sloooooooow as a snail.

I'll copy and past a M503 command results below.

>>> m503
echo: G21 ; Units in mm
echo: M149 C ; Units in Celsius
echo:Filament settings: Disabled
echo: M200 D1.75
echo: M200 D0
echo:Steps per unit:
echo: M92 X80.21 Y80.21 Z80.00 E98.96
echo:Maximum feedrates (units/s):

echo:Maximum Acceleration (units/s2):
echo: M201 X500 Y500 Z100 E100
echo:Acceleration (units/s2): P<print_accel> R<retract_accel> T<travel_accel>

echo: M205 S0.00 T0.00 B20000 X8.00 Y8.00 Z0.40 E5.00
echo:Home offset:
echo: M206 X0.00 Y0.00 Z0.00
echo:Material heatup parameters:

M145 S1 H240 B70 F255
echo:PID settings:
echo: M301 P20.71 I1.54 D69.58



I also somehow had my extruder set to 1000 LOL, no idea what default was but 100 seemed way more reasonable, though if that's not default I'd like to know please.


Main things I'm looking for, What is the factory acceleration rate for the extruder? How can I restore full travel back to the Z axis? And what is the factory Z acceleration and feed rate?


Thank you, we were all n00bs once, I will look back on this and laugh one day, I hope.

@meanman I think the easiest way is to initialize EEPROM. I only have Ender5 Pro so the attached is Ender5 pro's screen, but should be the same as your Ender5.

Problem solved, I found out I could just send a M502 command and then save that to restore the defaults. Thanks though.
