Power cuts out and stops print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Power cuts out and stops print

Good-day wonderful folk,

This has happened once or twice returning the next day expecting to see a finished print, but finding that the machine has stopped mid print.

today was the first time i actually witnessed it happening, but it was only happening on the second layer (i had the heated bed at 25 degrees). but then it happened on a few hours in to a hugge print...

i swapped power supplies (we have three UM2+'s) and the same thing happened. Did another test and it seemed okay. however the 15 hour print on the one next to it then decided to die. same thing - click and power off then on.

occasionally the led's will flicker followed by a click and then the machine turns off then back on, but sometimes there was no flickering of the LED's.

this setup has worked all year with each machine plugged in and printing simultaneously happily (with one or two random failures in the past)

i'm at a loss here

I'd start out inspecting the wire loom and connectors for possible shorts, just in case. The click would be the the main board power relay letting go.

    • "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.
