Extruder motor not working (?)

Hey guys,

So, after some heavy printing nozzle kept getting clogged so I decided to disassemble the whole extruder unit and clean it. I disconnected everything including thermistor and heater. After clean up conneceted everything back again and it was okay except one element I didn't even touch which is the extruder motor

What wrong? It works for 13/14 second and stops for another 14 second and it goes in a loop like that. Any idea what's wrong? I mean I didn't even mess with it :/.


One more thing - I don't have problems with loading/unloading the filament. Also when I use the extrude button in Pronterface I can do it for as long as I want, way beyond the 14sec mark.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I really will not be a specialist on this subject, but I think the error is on some sensor what is inside on extruder.
