I just got my ender 6 this week. After getting it together and powering it up I leveled the bed and was going to try a test print.
The issue I have is the extruder motor will not engage.
I have made sure that the filament will move though the extruder and it does.
I tried adjusting the gears with no effect.
I tried to run the motor with no filament and the same skipping effect happens.
The main screw/gear does not trun it makes a little back and forth movement but does not rotate.
I checked all the power connections top.and underneath and they are all correct.
The cable for the y axis motor looks to be the same as the extruder cable so I tried that to.make sure it was not a cable issue and the same thing happens, it does not turn.
The gear on the picture I attached is what moves back and forth a little when I try to make it move with the refuel setting, I have tried the retract and forward setting both do the same thing. The same happens when I press the lever down so the second gear is not in contact with the main gear.
Not sure what to try next so I am looking for suggestions.
