Build Plate won't heat past 100 degrees

Posted · Build Plate won't heat past 100 degrees

Hi! I have had my Ultimaker 2 for a very long time now about 2 years. It has been having a problem with heating the build plate for as long as I can remember. It refuses to go past 100 degrees. I can let it sit for an hour and it will make it up to the 97-98 ish range, but never go over. I set my buildplate temp to 185 to try and make it heat faster but it never seems to help. When printing I have had it blip up to 101 but that was for about an hour. I can never seem to get it high enough to print flat abs prints. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

If you use Tinkerware then you can auto tune the head bed and switch it between bang bang and PID. So this may help give more control.

I recommend using that firmware anyway.

To counter the same problem, I cover the glass with a thick cardboard cover, by the advice received on the very same question I asked once on this forum, in the good old times.
