Troubleshooting - Printjob Startup Issues

  1. Filament doesn't stick to the bed
    Distance between hot-end tip and bed too big after homing. This is the most common bed adhesion problem. Tips to solve this. After homing the hot-end should touch the bed. The bed is 0, so when above ...
  2. Printer doesn't heatup, stops heating, Heater decoupled / DEF / DEC
    When printer doesn't heatup, it could be that the the printer went in standby mode to save power. Only applicable to FELIX 3.1 and older. To get printer out of standby mode do one of the...
  3. Homing issues, printing in the air, Z sensor triggered, Bed leveling issues(G32/G33 leveling failed)
    In general the z-sensor circuit is not working properly when you have one of the following issues: Z-axis only moves a few mm downwards when homing. Printing/extruding in the air. Bed leveling...
  4. z-axis moves down slowly when idle for Pro
    The FELIX pro has a ballscrew with very low friction to ensure accurate z-axis movement. This in some cases especially with a heavy object can cause the z-axis to move down by itself at a low speed....
  5. Humming noise from heated bed, TEC 4
    The TEC 4, can give a humming noise from the bed heater. Especially when it is near its setpoint temperature and the printer is idle. The temperature controller quickly starts to control the...
  6. Nozzle(s) too close /too far to bed, during first layer
    When the nozzle is too close or too far from the bed during the first layer. It can be caused by the following things. Z-homing sensor not properly setup, consult the manual of your printer, to...
  7. The z axis makes a lot of noise when moving
    This normally only applies to the FELIX 3 and TEC series. When the z-axis makes a squeeking noise, please apply some grease on the z-axis. Apply a small amount of thick ball bearing grease to ensure...
  8. The extruder makes a loud clicking noise and no material is being extruded
    When during printing you hear a clicking/ticking noise coming from the print-head. It is most likely the sound of the stepper motor stagnating and skipping a motor-step. This is not harmfull to the...
  9. Z-sensor issues, leveling not working Tec 4
    In some cases the Tec 4 can have issues with the leveling and probing function. Most of the times the following steps fix the issues. Double check if the z-screw fixing the spindle to the motor is ...
  10. Blank (blue) screen FELIX Pro series after turning on
    In some rare occassions, the firmware of the printer can be removed by powercycling the printer (turning it on and off) very fast. It is easy to fix, by just reinstalling the firmware. Please check...
