    Extruder motor problems?

    I was finishing a print up and cleared build plate started another one and the extruder was not working. Dismantled changed wiring* no go. Changed motor * no go. Bought new main board thinking it may be the driver on the board. Replaced whole board and still a no go?? Anyone have any other ideas?

    Can you move the extruder using the menu on the printer or on your software, rather than during a print? Maybe try it with the extruder completely disassemble and see if the motor steps.

      Yes did that. Tried both motors again still nothing

        Ok. Got it figured out. It was the motherboard . I replaced all of wiring and motor and motherboard. But when I tested it I didnít heat extruder up to at least 170c. I went to printer heated up, checked extrusion again and bingo.

          Glad you got it sorted, I have fallen into the cold extruder trap myself when testing.

            Yes, I guessed the motherboard settings of your 3D printer were slightly inappropriate and this could be one of the causes of standstill of the equipment. While you face any such troubles in the future, do not forget to consider these petty aspects first.
