Extruder motors can safely operate until they reach 212 °F (100 °C), but most of them don’t exceed the 140 to 194 °F (60 to 90 °C) range.
How hot should extruder motor get?
The standard temperature for an extruder motor is around 45-70°C without an enclosure. The extruder motor will heat up more when it is constantly working to push filament out without breaks from travel movements and other things. If your extruder motor goes above 70°C+, then you may want to apply some fixes.
Is it OK for stepper motors to get hot?
It’s normal for step motor temperatures to reach 70°, 80°, or even 90°C. While these temperatures make it too hot to touch the motor, the motor itself is unharmed.

How do I fix heat failed printer halted?
A usual fix of a halted heating 3D printer is to double-check the assembly of your extruder, making sure there are no large gaps between the heat break, heater block, and nozzle.
Why is my extruder not heating up?
When a 3D printer nozzle isn’t heating up, there may be a problem with the thermistor, the wires within the printer may be disconnected, or there’s something wrong with the cartridge heater.
