Make sure the print surface is metal in order for the probe to trigger. Make sure that any surface you plan to have installed when printing is on the platform.
Lower the gantry by hand so that the nozzle comes close to the print surface. Once close enough the red light on the probe should come on.
The nozzle tip should always remain above the surface when the probe is triggered. The bottom of the probe should always remain above the tip of the nozzle.
Nozzle too close or hits the print surface before the red light on the probe comes on:
Lower the probes position on the mount and check again.
Red light on probe but nozzle tip is too far away (more than 3mm) from the print surface or the probe is coming in contact with the surface before the nozzle:
Raise the probes position on the mount and check again.
