Unstable Nozzle Temp

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that my nozzle temperature will occasionally jump around crazy during the start of a print. I am printing in PLA at 210C, but the nozzle will drop to 205 then shoot up to 212 and will flux.

What would cause this, loose cables on the print head?

check if all your cables on top of the print head are secure: the thin ones going into the green block and the white connectors. Sometimes they can get a bit loose because of the motion. And separate the fan wires as much as possible from the rest.
