Hello all,

I can't find a topic for the Ender 6, so...

I received my Ender 6 last week, and after finishing my last print (15,5h) everything looks fine.

But when starting a new print the extruder motor is not working anymore.

And sending the printer to home position the X movement is not working (with al lot of noise).

Upgrading to the latest firmware 1.0.4.9 was not the solution.

 

Is there anything I can try?

Kind regards, Ruud

@rumarsies It seems like the stepper driver or mainboard issue. Could you share a video of this problem here? We don't have too much information or feedback on Ender 6. Also, you can contact the after-sale for details.

I tried to test the extruder motor by connecting it to the Y motor just beside.

extruder motor works. then no pb on this side.

I heard that there is a thermal protection and the extruder cannot be operated if the nozzle in less that 170-180°C. when I try to use the filament refill fonction, the nozzle is at 195°C, but the fonction doesn't push the filament.

any idea ?

Hi all,

Thanks for the reply’s.

My problem is solved, it was the connector on the main cable from the mainboard to the small pcb with all the connectors to the x motor, the extruder motor etc.

 

Because of the connector is on the under site of the small pcb the weight of the cable and maybe vibrations had loose the connector a little and caused strange behaviour to the x motor and mallfunctioning of the extruder motor. 

Push in the connector again and fixed with a ty-rap to prevent to happen again and my Ender 6 works as before!

 

I hope this will help you all too.

Kind regards, Ruud

Hi there, I have the same problem.

I bought an Ender-6 printer 2 months ago. During this period, I got several quality prints. But for the past week, the Extruder hasn't been working in any way.

First, I unplugged the 3D printer and waited and tried again but it didn't work.

Then I thought maybe it could be caused by the motherboard driver update. The printer came from the factory with version 1.0.4. I had installed the latest version 1.0.4.9 driver. I replaced this driver with the 0.0.4 driver on the SDCard that came with the printer. This didn't run the extruder either.

As the last solution, I changed the cables of the Y motor and the Extruder motor. With this action, the extruder worked. But when I restore it, the problem persists.

Is there anyone to suggest anything to solve this situation?

Thanks in advance,
