Filament runout false positives

So, I’m overall pretty satisfied with the parts coming off of my new Creality CR-10s5 but now I’m getting into the multi-day prints which caused me to buy a large format printer. (it’s for this project)

Yesterday during a short print the machine incorrectly decided that filament had run out and just now during the first day of a 6 day long print it did it again. It doesn’t cause the print to fail (I can just go through the usual filament change routine) but if it regularly happens right after I go to bed then it will push out my schedule quite a bit.

Have you run into this problem before? If so, did replacing the filament sensor solve the problem?

After checking everything I could think of, I replaced the filament runout sensor and since then I haven’t had a problem.

Sometimes it’s actually the simplest solution? :slight_smile:
