    Hi Craig
    You gave me the clue I needed to repair my Finder which has been broken since last December. I damaged the temperature sensor while performing a hot end upgrade. My Finder must have been made even before yours because its serial is FFF199471, though it was bought as new in August 2018 from a reputable Australian hobby electronics retailer.
    Oddly, the damaged temp sensor looked exactly like the Thermocouple currently sold as a Finder spare part by Flashforge with blue cable sheath...

    A thermo couple device is polarity sensitive, try connecting the wires the opposite way round.
    The FF Dreamer & Finder use a K-Type thermo couple. the wires are made of specific dissimilar materials that generate a voltage when heated. The Mother-Board detects this volttage change & works out the temperature.
    All thermo-couples are polarity sensitive, & iff connected the wrong way round they will give some very odd readings indeed.
    Note also that there are many types...

    Flashforge Finder lite Thermo problem

    Sorry if this has been posted before. I have a flashforge finder lite. My nozzle temperature has suddenly started reading very wrong. It goes steadily to about 170C, slows its increase to the point where the heater block/nozzle begins to smoke while still reading around 180C. Sometimes when it seems the temperature has stopped, it shoots to over 230C in a few seconds. I suspect the temp sensor is bad. Problem is I cant find a replacement. I have not been able to determine if it is a thermocouple...

    30 Days with the Flashforge Finder

    Hi Everybody,

    I just finished 30 days running my Flashforge Finder and made a blog about my prints and troubleshooting.
    Hopefully this will help others make a decision on this printer or help them troubleshoot problems.
    Overall, it's a good printer for $650CAN.

    My parents are buying me a flashforge finder for my very first 3d printer. Could anyone give me some tips and tricks about this printer and 3d printing in general? Thank you.

  • Flashforge Finder vs Velleman Vertex K8400 printer.


    I'm thinking about investing in my first 3D printer, and I was looking for some advice on what to buy.

    I was looking at the Flashforge Finder, and it looks good, but my concern is that it has no support for heated bed, and is not able to print with Ninjaflex (or am I wrong there?). A good thing with the Finder is that it is more or less Plug-and-play.

    The Velleman one has support for dual head, and it is possible to add a heated bed on it, but looks...

  • Flashforge Guider 2 - First Layer issues

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm new to the site and also fairly new to 3D Printing but very much enjoying it.

    I started out with the Flashforge Finder which was really good and easy to use out of the box.

    I now have the Flashforge Guider 2, and apart from a few teething problems for some of the settings its going fairly well.

    I'm currently having issues with the first layer, i have reduced the print speed to see if this helps but its currently printing the...

    Flashforge Finder and painters tape

    Hi! I got a Finder this weekend and love the machine so far. Much more reliable than my previous 3D printer experiences. But I have one problem. I try to use painters tape on the print bed, but no matter how many times I recalibrate the bed level, the nozzle just plows deep into the tape resulting in no filament getting extruded. I even tried the "calibrate extruder" function with paper as suggested in the manual, but that didn't help either.

    Is there anyone else who has had this...

    Thanks Grant.

    It turns out, even though my Finder was bought recently (Flashforge store on Amazon), it is an old model and actually has a NTC thermistor instead of a thermocouple! Flashforge USA knows nothing about this, and I didn't have much luck with the Chinese contact either. The only two replacement parts to be ordered from them are both thermocouples-- in either M3 or M4 thread.

    I can't imagine this thing being a knockoff because it is a complec machine with a...

    Flashforge and NinjaFlex

    I see he is on the flashforge manufacturer site. That means he probably has a Creator, Dreamer, or Finder. I believe they all have direct extruders. I may be doing some experiments using ninjaflex on my FF Creator Pro. I will try and remember to update on my results.

    Thermistor replacement Question

    Hello all, I have a Flashforge Finder Lite and after 3 months the temperature readings are crazy. It looks fairly linear to about 170-180C. It then pauses. Then either starts smoking or overheating or it will then climb to 230C in about 2 seconds. Both scenarios usually cook the PTFE tube, clog and burn the filament, I have not been able to find a spare part anywhere. I think it is a updated main board that is 24VDC. I have tried a NTC 3950_CWM but it reads 53C at room temperature.

    Just ordered a Prusa i3 MK3S kit!

    I hope there is a support group here when it arrives. My Flashforge finder is giving me extreme over temperature problems that I can't get any support for.
    Anyone out there familiar with Prusa printers?
