Had a problem with my UM2 heated bed

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Should start by saying this is now resolved and was a simple problem to fix.

I started a print yesterday with my UM2 and all was fine, when I came back to the print at the finish the bed was cold, following that I couldn't get the bed to heat up at all:(

I got the volt meter out and checked and there was plenty of voltage going to the bed, when I looked closer and some more testing I could just work out the solder conection had broken.

Luckily there is (very randomly) a place just up the road which make circuit boards, I took it to them and 2 min later all was good.

I thought I would post this I case anyone else has the same issue as I couldn't find anything about it on the forum which makes me think I was a touch unlucky with this one but as a said an easy fix!

Otherwise the UM2 has been working brilliantly and it's been mostly user error;)

Cheers

GBR1

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
