Did you wait for the extruder to heat up? Forget to put a temperature, or too high a temperature, in the slicer configuration? Put in a bed temperature and you don't have a heated bed? Any messages in the Repetier-Host log?

What happens? Does it home and stop? Your axis move, but the extruder doesn't turn? The extruder turns, but nothing comes out?

We need a bit more information.
