hotend temperature is not reached

Aug 12, 2018 9:28 am

Hello MK3 enthusiasts,
after I removed a blockage in the hotend and everything is reassembled the hotend reaches only a temperature of about 150 degrees.
what can be the reason?
the normal fan runs all the time. is that normal?

Thanks Martin

Solution:
The heat sink of the hot end was screwed too far onto the hot end so that too much heat was extracted from the heating element.
