M303 failure and other heater problems
Just getting around to turning on heaters on this custom build...I'm using a filastrude volcano tip with their supplied heating element and thermistor.
I was getting heater faults because of slow temp rise so I tried an M303 but that crapped out around 100 degrees C and said that it was cancelled because it did not meet the desired temp.
This is my first outing with these types of heaters so I'm a bit lost. I have the extruder heater on E0 and the thermistor on E0. I have a fan wired up but I disconnected for now because I wasn't sure if it was a factor.
I'm running the Duet at 12v currently.

Where did you get T"J" ? Are you sure that's the thermocouple type?
That’s for the bed...yes it’s correct and it does work. I haven’t tried the bed heater yet but I know the thermocouple is working.
For the extruder heater I’m now thinking that this is a power issue...the heater is likely a 24v unit...so I probably just need to juice the board voltage.

If its Volcano, then i bet the heater and termistor are from E3D. If so then:
- Make sure heater is for 12V and not 24V one. You can measure resistance of it, 12V one have 4-5 Ohms, when 24V one have much more (10+ at least).
- If its correct heater, then make sure its connected to heater block tight so contact between heater and block is good.
- Configure your termistor correctly. E3D uses Semitec 104GT termistor, so your M305 P1 T100000 B4388 C7.060000e-8 R4700 should look like this.
It’s definitely a 24v...so I’ll update that and my thermistor info.
Working! 24v and the thermistor line in config did the trick.
