"Error: Heater 1 not found" issue on Duet Maestro

  • Hello,

    I'm having a problem with setting up a custom printer. I was trying to tune my hotend when I received this message:

    Heater not found error.jpg

    I spent some time looking on this forum and the internet in general but I couldn't find a solution. Here's my config file, if it helps:

    What should I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    @Breadbin Can you go to the G-Code Console tab, send M115 to the Duet, and post the response? This will tell us what firmware version you are using.

    Then send M98 P"config.g" and post any errors it reports.


  • Thank you for the quick response! After following your instructions I'm thinking that I told the RepRap Configurator Tool the wrong firmware (2.05 when the board is actually running 3).

    @Breadbin Yup, that'll do it! And was my suspicion...

    If you saved the json file when you downloaded the configuration last time, you can upload that on the config tool's first page by clicking "Use existing configuration". Then just change the firmware version on the General page, and it should keep all the settings you have already set, and generate a compatible config.g.


  • Thank you! It looks like it works now.
