I got this M200 as a hand-me-down and I’ve sunk quite a bit of money into it.
I’m using External ABS primarily, and I’ve done the following:
- Added side & top covers to prevent warping
- Tightened a bunch of loose screws
- Replaced the hot end with a 3rd party all-metal variety which greatly improves flow
- Replaced extruder cable, hotend cable, thermocoupler/heater
I’ve gotten some good results, but lately I have the Error 011 EXTRUDER TEMPERATURE TOO HIGH. It occurs after about an hour of printing, sometimes right after starting a print when it’s already hot. I notice quite a bit of clicking from the extruder motor. I’ve tried a lot of suggestions here, like moving the position of the pinion (just seems to make it worse), pushing the motor closer to the bearing (no effect), etc. This error only started since I got a new hotend & nozzle that greatly improved flow of filament, and I already tried replacing the thermocoupler and extruder cable. Loading material w/ no filament seems to turn the motor OK, although I sense that the motor’s movement is “weak”, i.e. kind of shaky even when it’s not clicking.
I’m a bit confused as to how to go about this. Does the motor need replacement? Are some cables bad and how would I check? Does the Extruder PCB need replacement?
Since I’ve already sunk so much money into replacement parts, I’m anxious to get more parts without some clear indication of what’s wrong.
Thanks for any help or pointers you can provide!
