Hotend always on after updating RRF3

  • Hi,
    I've just updated to RRF3 and I've noticed that the hotend (hetear 1) is already active when I turn on the printer (even if the power supply is off). Look at the picture

    This is my config file:

    I've already checked the onboard leds: 3.3V is on, 5V is on, e0 Heat as well as Bed Heat are off.
    I've also tried to add "M104 S0" in confing.g but it doesn't work.

    Any advice is welcome. Thanks.

  • @zecchi

    It's active because you have a T0 at the end of your config.g. The temperature is 0 so it's active but not on if that makes sense.

  • Removing T0 at the end of config.g the hotend is no more active but in standby. Is there any way to shut it down?

  • @zecchi I'm not sure but why do you want to? You don't have an active or standby temperature set so it's not going be "On"

  • @Rushmere3D yeah, it's true, it was only to see "off" 😁
    thank you

  • active does not mean its heating.
    it means this tool has been selected

  • @Veti yeah, I've noticed. Thank you for the info

  • @zecchi A "T" followed by negative number will deselect a tool. So using T-0 might make it show as off rather than active at zero degrees. Don't know for sure as I always like to select at least one tool in config.g (because one can't extrude anything until a "Tn" command has been sent.)

  • @deckingman unfortunately T-0 (or any negative value ) doesn't work. At this point I'll leave "T0", as others say there is no difference for me. thank you all!

    Usually people have the opposite problem where they don't have T0 in config.g and then wonder why the temperature won't change and don't realize that a tool must be selected first.

    Using G10 P0 R0 S0 sets the temps to 0, so in effect, "off". T0 selects the tool, so that it is ready to accept a temperature command.
