Error codes (And what we can do with them)

I’m hoping someone has a list of error codes. I have a K1 Max and it generates a few errors. I’d love to know what they mean and a potential resolution.
E0500: Unknown error
I love this one…something happened to generate this, what was it?
In another post, @REDWOOD and @banjo451 asked about E2505 and our friend @Collin replied:
Hi, @REDWOOD Error code 2502 Cause: Abnormal motor driver chip (motor chip overheating, low voltage, short circuit…) . Please contact the official customer service to replace the motherboard.

Now that’s cool!
I’d love to get more insights even just to know what I can, and can’t fix myself…and I’m pretty stubborn about fixing stuff myself.
I’ve survived 2 Ender 3’s and an Anycubic MegaPro. I’m always up for a challenge!

I’m in the process of putting together an error code document for your reference.

Warning: E500, key: 2111, unknown exception" pops up on the screen.

Problem Analysis:
Nozzle temperature has not risen to 170 ° C, received instructions to operate the extruder


  1. Restart the machine
  2. machine related slices deleted, re-slice printing

So how do you reboot the machine? Nothing in the manual, touch screen, or C-Print.

Follow creality wiki

There is nothing there to reference rebooting. Only factory reset, I’ve become very used to using it.

@Zerquetch Sorry answer is so late. Just now reading these great posts.

Rebooting this machine is done by turning it off with the switch and then back on in a couple minutes.
Doing a factory reset in the options menu @ System / Reset to Default lets you choose to erase files and basically clean up the machine for a fresh start.
Hope this helps a little. :grinning:

@Collin I found the error codes in the Wiki site @
Thank you. Hopefully I’ll never have to use it… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Yeah, found under K1 Maintenance
