Original+ bead-heating stopped working

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I haven't printed for some weeks, but last time I did, it worked just fine.

However, today when I start up my Ultimaker Original+, the bedheating doesn't work anymore!

I tried different ways: normal print, preheat bed from menue, preheat PLA etc. NO succsess.

I do not get any error message at the blue screen. The temperature just won't rise and the bed stay's cool.

Any ideas, please!!!

Regards Uwe

Check the bed wires

If they look fine and fully plug then check the board heater cables. Make photos so we can debug too.


Sorry for answering late! I've been offline the whole weekend.

Yes, it seems to have been a cable problem. Though I didn't really find a fault, after I checked all cable and pushed and pressed everywere. Suddenly it was OK again.

Thanks for helping!

Regards Uwe

    • "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.
