sudden temperature drop at start (fan off...)

Recommended Posts

An UM1 which has been working fine for over 2 years recently developed a problem: after preheating until temperature is stable, the temp measurement suddenly drops by about 6 degrees the moment the printer starts moving towards the home position. The fan is off, so that's not it.

It causes terrible temp swings in the bottom layer, as you would expect. After a while the temp balances out again, but I'm not sure whether the temperature is actually right then...

Any ideas ?
