So i got my cr10s pro used with a filament blob on the mocroswiss hotend. The hotend would move side to side, so i assumed it was assembled incorrectly.
I cleaned it up. Perhaps i was a bit rough with the heater block but everything looked good to me.
I re-assembled it. Nozzle first, backed it off 1/4 turn, installed the heat brake till it was snug. Had to force the heater cartridge into the heater block, but its working.
As i look at the heat brake to the … Cooling fins? You know what i mean. The design looks like it dosent have much to grab and like it would allow the heater block to rotate. Anyway i attach the heater block, heat it up, tighten everything… It still rotates what feels to me is freely.
Is this normal?
As i attempt a benchy, i get another issue. My heat bed decided to turn off sometime in the first 30 minutes.
I re-slice, try again, same problem.
This is when i notice i have a small bit of filament leaking out the top of the heater block.
So now i tried retightening the hotend, nothing to tighten without breaking anything.
Is this rotation on the heater block normal… or have i done something wrong??
Im in the process of getting a new hotend as a spare, but currently only have the microswiss hotend to work with. Also im doubtful the heater cartridge is going to leave the heater block now.
