I keep receiving this error mid print.

"Max temp. error on the build plate. Go to ultimaker.com/ER14"

I check the cables on the build plate and the board as recommended.

This is the only forum entry I see which addresses the issue:

    What should I do next? Here are some screenshots of the temperature graph (I turned on and off different items in the legend) and also the event log.

    Hi,

     

    I haven't experienced this error personally but according to the help text the next step would be to contact your reseller.

    Before you do that, it might be worth a try to update the firmware to the latest version and reset to factory settings. If the board is not damaged, then a simple reset might help.

    Hi @engr,

     

    This is an "intermittent" open connection between the bed temp sensor and the electronic board (located underside the printer). If this happen the input signal go hi up to 5 VDC and showing max temperature, so printer is halted!

    You can test this by just start your printer and warm up you heat bed, say 60 Deg Celsius,

    then try to move the heat bed say half way up. Then just move the cable coming from the heat bed going to the inner left corner. Just move it up and down gently to see if there is some wiring problem, close to the corner and close to the bed is the weak point of such arrangement (but good to check first). Ofc. monitor temp when doing this. Now try to variate the temp slowly + - 5 Deg, just to see if this is related to temperature variation.

    Second check that the bed temp connector is properly installed.

    Since this is an intermittent problem, it might also be the temp sensor on the heat bed that's the problem. Actually has happen a few times.. This latter is more complicated to correct. 

     

    Thanks

    Regards

    Torgeir.

    @Torgeir Thanks for the help. I agree, looks like a temp sensor or else the main board. Will try replacing the thermistor on the heat bed.

    Replacing the thermistor (temperature sensor) seems to have fixed the problem.

    If you know how to solder and replace SMD components, it's the PT100 component on the bed heater (see this site https://fbrc8.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/208281963-Heated-Bed-Plate ) and we used this component https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/heraeus-sensor-technology-usa/32207605/1759-1009-1-ND/6677788 [specs 100 Ohms RTD Platinum ±0.3% ±3850ppm/°C -50°C ~ 130°C 0805 ].

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
