    Yikes, I guess one of the wires had worked loose and was shorting.

    I had my wires come unsoldered from the buildplate itself. Difficult to solder because of so much metal, but it's been working for a couple of years since the repair.

     Yea it is because the connector is the spring loaded type and not screw on - before this happen was getting some very bad print with lifting from the built plate.

  2. Have been running my UM2 for since 2014 with the usual maintenance and not having major problem.

    Today suddenly there was a bad burnt smell and my print was in a mess of tangle wire.

    Going through the maintenance menu found Built plate heater not working.

    Have to check tomorrow to see what is wrong.


    Anyone face this problem before?


  3. I have bought the 3d Solex olssen block upgrade for my Ultimaker 2. It comes with 0.4 stainless steel nozzle.

    Have problem with printing PLA at 220 deg C. Temperature have to set at 235 for filament to flow.

    Also infill was not printing correctly. Previous original ULtimaker 2 nozzle and filament was ok.

    Anyone have any idea that the heater must be upgraded to a higher power?

  4. Bought a few whitel PLA and colour PLA.

    The white PLA printed fine, but next morning the Filament will be broken at the place between the filament spool and the feeder.

    Happen the same with all the white filament. Color Filament from earlier batch don't have the problem so it is not the machine.

    The broken part will be very brittle, tried to bend any other area of the filament does not break.
