Filament Sensor Squeak

Hey all,

Any tips to reduce filament sensor squeak it seems to squeak in short bursts when extruding at a high rate.  It's odd that it is not consistent.  I've tried loosening the pressure bolt on the ptfe but that didn't seem to help too much.  Any thoughts?

Cheers,

do you have a small ptfe tube on the other end? I had the same problem but it was gone when i put the ptfe tube that was in the "spare parts" bag into the other end of the sensor.

I do have it installed.  I'm wondering though if it's just new and will take some breaking in or maybe I have not fully installed the tube.  I will have to check into it.  IT seems to be occurring less often now so maybe was just some break in time.

i had the problem when i changed the filament but also had some work done on the extruder (loose screw). I noticed that it was gone when i lifted the sensor up by hand and the squeaking was gone. I put in the longer ptfe tube from the spare parts in the sensor and also made sure that the tube on the other end was correct inserted on both ends. No squeaking anymore but maybe it has also something to do with the filament ?!
