UM2 Built Plate not heating up

Recommended Posts

Have been running my UM2 for since 2014 with the usual maintenance and not having major problem.

Today suddenly there was a bad burnt smell and my print was in a mess of tangle wire.

Going through the maintenance menu found Built plate heater not working.

Have to check tomorrow to see what is wrong.


Anyone face this problem before?

Yikes, I guess one of the wires had worked loose and was shorting.

I had my wires come unsoldered from the buildplate itself. Difficult to solder because of so much metal, but it's been working for a couple of years since the repair.

 Yea it is because the connector is the spring loaded type and not screw on - before this happen was getting some very bad print with lifting from the built plate.
