Temperature sensor not working


Recommended Posts

Posted · Temperature sensor not working

I have an Ultimaker Original (not plus) and the temperature sensor won't work. It always thinks the bed is at 100 degrees, even when the bed is cool to the touch. The heating table is aftermarket, but I don't know where it's from. I checked for broken wires or loose connections, all is in order. What should I do?

    Did you change the firmware? If you did then see if you can get the original firmware that the previous owner was using. And any other information about how the heated bed sensor works (like what kind of sensor it is). You can rebuild the firmware for many different types of heated beds but first you need to know what kind of temp sensor it is. Also consider heating it with your hands or a hair dryer (the sensor - not the entire bed) and seeing if the temp reading changes a bit.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
