Err: MAXTEMP BED after a weeks use (UMO)

Recommended Posts


I bought a Heated bed upgrade to my UMO and have been using it for about a week now.

Today I started a 4hr print with Colorfabb XT, 255C nozzle and 70C bed....after 1.5 hrs machine 'crashed' meaning the nozzle glued itself to the print because of this alarm and I guess it shut down nozzle heater and bed.

Now I cant start the bed, temp is all over the place, 100C-32C-150C-500C-48C-130C like this every 2 secs..

Anyone know if its bed is faulty or have experienced similar ?

After a weekend with fiddling, its the connector to the heatbed thats acting up, i've

taken off the heatbed 3-4 times and 'retightened' the screws (when you tighten an already tight screw, you'll start to break the head when the screwdriver loose grip) But after a while the same error happens.

For now it last longest then I jam something inbetween the wires sticking out and the wooden base.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
