Alright, interesting problem. Extruder 1 motor doesn't turn anymore when loading filament. It feels like its rapidly changing back and forth between clockwise and counter-clockwise.
This problem began during a mid-print filament change. I tried a completely new NEMA 17 motor, and was getting the same issue. Its a 2.0, flashed with Repetier. None of the wires seem bad, is this a firmware glitch of some sort?

What are the steps to reproduce?I guess more for EEPROM settings change if Hw is okIt is not FW issue if was ok before
so now you cannot load anymore using printer menu ?
what menu did you used extruder position ? or load/unload menu ?
I use the command load/unload, but it won't actually turn the motor to feed the filament into the nozzle.
And I just checked the settings on the printer, didn't find any HW or FW settings?
Alright, just did this, and for the X stepper, just to be sure, and both the X and Y steppers moved. Slowly, but they moved alright. (unsure why the new NEMA 17 motor didn't work).
I'll go and try reflashing it. Thank you!
The X and Y stepper cables are too short to jack into the extruder motor.
The X and Y motors did move with the extruder cables jacked into them.
Reflashed just this morning, everything seems to be working. Thanks for the help everyone!
