Ultimaker 2 Heated bed replacement


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 Heated bed replacement

The heated bed on my Ultimaker 2 has stopped working giving Error code ER02, I have checked the cables and swapped them over as suggested by Ultimaker but it looks like I need a replacement bed.

I have seen one advertised on Amazon which is a lot cheaper than those available here in the UK, has anyone fitted one of these Chinese made beds and are they worth the risk.

    Personally I would not do it. Cheap Chinese made beds can work, but can also catch fire or whatever. For a quality printer you should also buy good replacement parts, to be on the safe side.

    I added a china bed to ultimaker one many years ago. no problems up to now... make certain to use adequate wiring though since your fires are more likely to start there.

    Thanks Bob, still undecided and so checking all current wiring and soldered joints to try and pinpoint problem but if I have no success then will go for the cheaper option but carefully.
