Can't skip cooldown on S5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can't skip cooldown on S5



We've had our S5 for a few years now and have had a great experience with it overall, other than one software issue that's been present for a while now.

I've seen the topic of the 'skip cooldown' button not actually skipping cooldown a number of times on here but I've never seen a solution.

This didn't use to be an issue before an update a while back that I sadly can't roll back to.


Can anyone offer a solution for this? It's costing me a lot of time after every print!

    When I'm in a rush I remove the glass bed from the printer.  Then the printer sees things cooling down much faster.  Then once the printer is happy you can put the glass bed back on the printer.  You can also store the bed on something insulated like between 2 towels so it doesn't cool much.
