My GF is not working properly. Friday and Saturday I was having trouble cutting through material:
I have cut through this material many times with no issue. On Monday, I decided to clean my air assist fan based upon advice from several different GF support resources in attempt to get cuts how they should be.
After cleaning and reassembling I tried to cut again. However, the GF would not get past the “Centering” step for me to even attempt a cut.
When I turn on the machine, the printer head attempts to center but never does. I have gotten a couple of error messages like “Bumped” and “Head Not Found.” I have attempted a few things to try and fix this issue. Nothing has worked so far. I reached out to GF tech support yesterday but have not heard back from them. Please help!
Any chance you flipped the belt the wrong way when reassembling the carriage plate? If it were put back facing the wrong way, the print head would move left when the machine’s trying to move it right, so it wouldn’t be able to center or home. Should be entirely between the two sets of wheels, with the teeth facing inward.
The teeth can face inward without the belt being twisted. Pick up the part that’s under your finger and flip it over while bringing it over to the other side of the metal clamp holding the belt to the plate. Then the teeth will be facing inward, and between the wheels where it’s supposed to be. It’ll look like the photo dklgood just posted above.
