Wire is broken. 1 or more at the entrance of the wires in the stepper motor. This is due to the illiterate of the Assembly. Wires must be laid so that when moving extruder left-right was not bend the wire. I had it, I made out the stepper motor, made anew all the solder wires, new wires, put again in the cable channel and connected to the card. Now when moving wires not bend.

The red wire was broken inside the stepper motor just on the point where the wires comes out the motor. Try to solder the wire but end up to order a new stepper motor.
fixes the cables to the back of the motor so no more bending on the wires.

I keep getting the same failure - it is the same as this right? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=470UHVp_ ... e=youtu.be

Posted the same error here: http://forum.felixprinters.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=745

I'll go check my stepper motor to see if the wire is broken! I'll keep you updated!

It doesn't seem like the wire is broken in my case... How do I know for sure? :geek:

Do I have to open the back of the stepper motor to check? I have attached some pictures - I think that it is difficult to see anything. I have tried to pull a little bit in each wire but they seem to be firm...

Any suggestions?

Я пойду проверить мои шагового двигателя, чтобы увидеть, если провод разбито! Я буду держать вас в курсе!

100% breakage of wires. I have exactly the same way. Remove the back cover of the engine and solder all the wires again. It is better to change the entire posting to the boards.

I can also confirm 100% wire break. I fixed the wires with some hot glue
