TL;DR - Please help me rebuild my CR-6 SE so that I can move on
Here's a link to the latest issue that I had to make proof of in a video: CR6-SE failed
Basically, it's failing to reach/maintain temperature (set point of 240 °C, fails to heat above 230 °C), issues start to happen at temps as low as 210 °C. Creality support is evasive/dodgy. First, they want to see a video proof for the problem reported, and after a while and emails from me asking, suggested something obvious (set temp to 200 °C).
And without any video, they don't respond. Just like last time when I ran into the defective/burned power switch and failed bed leveling.
If you have some spare time, please quickly check the video and provide some feedback.
I already fixed the burned power switch and auto-leveling (Creality ignored me, so I got the parts from Amazon).
This is the last issue that I need to do a "mercy" fix, so that I can either repurpose it or, just give it away (but I still have to make it working again and safe!). I already placed an order for an i3 MK3S+, should've bought this in the first place to help me study 3D modeling, not working my degree towards fixing Creality printer failures :)
Thanks in advance.
My troubleshooting steps so far after a screw fell off during print:
- Disassembled the hotend: found heater block loose, screws were bent and somewhat stripped
- Heater resistor has a bad crimp
- Thermistor is reading temp, but I don't know if it's accurate (don't have a multimeter+thermocouple)
Ordered a hotend from AliExpress, hopefully, that's it
