UMO+ heated bed

Recommended Posts

Posted · UMO+ heated bed

Hey,

My heated bed recently went down and stopped working and I don't have the spare cash to fix it at the moment.

Since I don't use the heated bed at all, is there a way for me to disable it completely and print without it? I only really print PLA, so I don't think I'll miss it at all.

Any help appreciated to help me keep printing over Christmas :)

Wasn't Christmas 3 months ago?

 

If the temp sensor works but the heater is broken then it's simple - just set the temperature to 0 in cura.

If the temp sensor broke you can attach a 100 ohm resistor at the connector where the temp sensor goes.  And again, set the temperature to 0 in cura.  Probably you should disconnect the heater cable while you are at it.

 

But you have more choices.  These things are usually very easy to fix.  Usually it's a loose wire.  Usually it's at the bed and just needs the solder reflowed at the connector there.  Do you have a friend who knows how to solder and use an ohm meter?  This is a pretty simple thing to take apart and fix.  There are photos and instructions on the forum or I can help if you have said friend.

Also if you are printing with no heat you should use the supplied blue painters tape and put that on the glass and print on the tape.  It's important to clean the tape with rubbing alcohol (aka isopropyl alcohol) to remove the slippery waxy surface so parts stick to the tape.
