[Solved] Idler position problems  

New Member

Hi all,

I’ve got an annoying issue with the idler. If filament 1 is selected the bearing is nowhere near the gear and therefore not placing pressure on the filament to allow the gear to drag it through. However, when filament 1 is selected, the idler is nicely positioned for filament 2 and will grab any filament in the channel, not ideal.

This is a new build and I’m confident all of the parts are in the right places and tight where needed and looser where applicable. Running the latest firmware and have tried a factory reset with no improvement. The idler doesn’t spin to the right position even with the top open so it’s not a drag issue.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

I just read this post, it appears to me that your idler motor is in the wrong position.

Stay safe and healthy, Phil...

Managed to solve the problem, it was due to a problem with the idler itself which looks to be an artefact of the original print.

I reprinted it and everything now working.
