    I have this happen to me on occasion.  I won't say with 100% certainity but I fix the issue by upping my hotend temps and check my cooling to see if it is apropriate.  As well as  making sure that the lower layers are firmly printing and attaching to the bed.

    Also, I make sure to dry my filament.

    Combinations of those three fix the issue for me.  I would guess that wet filament is the largest problem followed by the hotend temperature and cooling.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
