    Hello

    I'm trying to get my bb dual V1.1 with volcanos up and running. so far its been a pain.
    My latest problem is heating the left extruder above 200 degrees. It'll happily sitt at 200 for an hour, probably more as I've not tested for longer. But if I try to go above 200 degrees I get the heating failed error.
    My right extruder will heat to 285 no problem. I've checked the PT100 they are corretly mounted and reporting heat from the right extruder. The extruders get very hot, so no problems there either. It almost seems like the 30W heating element is to small

    I am having the same proplem. Except neither of mine will go above 200. Greg has started to help me on the feed I created if we want to continue the troubleshoot there

    Hello I've read the other thread, my nozzle was screwed all the way in. I've had to disasemble my hotends so that I can print a new IR mount. And only assembled one V6 hotend so that i'll be able to print. I'll re test once I've printed the missing parts and reassembeled everything
