Our mainboards have a removable fuse (0451012.MRL) that protects the mainboard from shortcircuits. Usually, if your printer doesn't heat both hotends and the bed, and the motors are not working wither, you will need to change the fuse. To check and change the fuse, follow the next steps:

 

1. Turn off and disconnect the printer.
