Ultimaker 2+ - Heated Bed Temp Reading Stuck @85

Recommended Posts

My build plate will no longer heat up because it is always reading at a temperature of 85-86 degrees. If I set the build plate temperature to heat up to 90, it'll start heating the build plate, but only bring it up 5 degrees above ambient temperature. I believe my build plate is still capable of heating, but that the temperature reader is broken. Does anyone know how to correct this?

I think this was actually a software error. I kept fiddling with the settings and gently wiggling the wires to no avail.

 

Finally thought to turn the printer on and off again.

 

Fixed. 

 

Embarrassing, but leaving the post up here in case this is helpful to anyone else who gets a temperature glitch.

Hmmm, I started a print with the print bed heated to 65 degrees. A half hour in the temperature shows at 99 degrees and the print bed is ambient temperature again.

 

I'm going to try doing a software update, which I have not done in several months. However I fear some hardware component is on the fritz. I've done fixes with the motors and the feeder and the print head and fans, but nothing where I had to touch an electrical connection. Hoping software fixes this. :-/

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
