How to Replace the Filament Run-out Sensor Assembly

Tool:

①    2mm hex wrench

1. Enter the "Utilities" interface, click the "Unload" button to unload the filament from the nozzle on the side of the filament run-out sensor to be replaced. Here, we take the left side as an example. Wait for the temperature to reach the target temperature, then click the "Start to Unload" button. The printer will automatically start to unload the filament.

Note: The recommended unloading temperature of Raise3D Premium PLA filament is 215℃. When using third-party filaments, refer to the printing temperature marked on the filament tray. Usually, the temperature is 5-10℃ higher than the printing temperature of the filament.

Figure 1 Unload the filament.

 

2. After the filament finishes unloading from the extruder (this example uses the left extruder), remove the filament from the left guide tube. Press and hold the clip on the quick connector and pull out the guide tube from the side of the filament run-out sensor.

Figure 2 Remove the guide tube.

 

3. Turn off the printer.

 

4. Open the side door of the printer and find the filament run-out sensor assembly.

5. Unplug the connecting cable of the side filament run-out sensor assembly. Since we are using the left extruder in this example, the connecting cable will be plugged into the left side of the filament run-out sensor.

Figure 4 Unplug the connecting cable.

 

6. Remove one securing screw that fixes the filament run-out sensor assembly.

Figure 5 Remove the securing screw.


7. Push out the old filament run-out sensor assembly using the finder.

Figure 6 Remove the old filament run-out sensor assembly.

 

8. Prepare a new filament run-out sensor assembly.

9. Put the new filament run-out sensor assembly back into the original slot.

Figure 8 Install the new filament run-out sensor assembly.

 

10. Install the securing screw back to the filament run-out sensor assembly with a 2mm hex wrench.

Figure 9 Install the securing screw.


11. Connect the connecting cable of the filament run-out sensor assembly.

Figure 10 Connect the connecting cable.

 

12. Turn on the printer and check whether the indicator light of the filament run-out sensor assembly remains on.

Figure 11 Check whether the indicator light is on.

13. Insert the filament into the left loading hole, and check whether the indicator light is off when the filament passes through the filament run-out sensor assembly.

Figure 12 Check whether the indicator light is off.

 

14. If the indicator light turns off when the filament passes through the filament run-out sensor assembly then the filament run-out sensor assembly has been replaced successfully. If the indicator does not turn off, contact Raise3D's after-sales support.
