Had a problem with my UM2 heated bed

Posted · Had a problem with my UM2 heated bed

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

I suppose it is the screw terminal that had a loose solder point where it is connected to the heated bed?

At the end where the PT100 sits (thin cables).

Can you post pics of where this dodgy solder connection was?

 

Here u go. Should say that UM support was very helpful as well..

Its hard to make out in the photos but its the main live cable terminal..
