UP Mini 2 Not Extruding, stepper motor issue?

Post by benclimas123 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 10:25 am

Hi. I've just recently purchased an UP Plus 2 printer. For the first few days, everything was printing perfectly. However, a few days ago my printer stopped printing. The stepper motor appears to have stopped working. The PLA filament is not being pushed down, towards the nozzle. I have checked to make sure that the nozzle is not clogged and that the ribbon cable is securely plugged in. After beginning a print, the the printer begins moving as it normally should, except that no plastic is coming out of the nozzle. Essentially it is just printing air. How can I fix this problem? Can anyone help? I'm new to 3d printing. Thanks.

If there is no warming while pringing,make sure if the motor are broken---by removeing the nozzle cover and extruding.
