Ultimaker original thermocouple show consistent but too low temps

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I recently got into possion of an Ultimaker original.

After I cleaned it up and it passed the Cura checks, I started printing but noticed the sweet-ish smell of burning PLA. I checked the temp and it looked normal but when I measured with my IR thermometer I got values of around 280C ca 50C higher then I intented to print with.

I printed tethered with 50C lower temp and the heating curve was not a smooth as my e3dV6 but still ok and the burning smell was gone.

There were no min temp or other temp halt errors so Im a bit puzzled by that behavior. I thought of a wrong thermistor table but I wouldnt expect that from an Ultimaker since I didnt mess with the firmware.

Anyway has someone ever seen something like this?

and secondly im thinking of switching to a normal 100k thermistor that I have laying around, that shouldnt be an issue even with the 19V electronics right?

Cheers

    • "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.
