Filament feed problem - E-motor stops while printing
#1
Sad 
Hello,
I have a problem: unpredictable feed stops while printing. Printer starts normally, working for some time (about 30 minutes) and in any unpredictable moment stop filament feed. The E-motor just stop and feeding wheel not rotating at all. If I catch the moment, pause printing job and resume printing again - it works properly for some time (5..15 minutes) and stops again.
It is definitely not about noozle pollution because if I use "Extrude more" command in the menu, it extrudes nice smooth wire of plastic. And it continue printing job good after pause. 
But it makes me crazy: any project longer than 30 minutes could be spoiled!

I believe it is a problem with G-codes translation.
I made experiments with slicers: with Cura v.3.6.0 (newest version) filament feed stops very quickly, even after 3..5 minutes.
IdeaMaker - the same.
Repetier-Host v.2.0.1 gives better results, but filament feed stops approximately after 30..60 minutes.

I'm using now PLA, noozle temperature 200..210C.

So now I suppose I wasted 500$ (printer cost +delivery) for nothing...  Crying

If someone can help me with this problem I would be very thanksfull for it!

Hello Chris,
You did not read my message carefully. I have a completely different problem. 
I almost sure my problem due to idiotic cooling system. And not connected with any mechanical issues.
