Printbed not heating anymore

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printbed not heating anymore

Had my printer for about 6 months, used it yesterday, now the bed isn't heating up anymore

All visible wires seem ok, temperature sensor is working.

What's the procedure for finding the error?

Do the servos move? Does the head heat up? If not then ignore everything below:

I had this problem. Very easy to fix. It's usually the connection to the plate - to the bed. It could also be underneath the larger panel of the printer.

Remove the glass (don't cut yourself - use pliers on the clips).

Remove the 3 leveling screws. Remove the 2 screws holding the black wire in the back. Take the bed apart (there maybe be another screw but I don't think so.

Inspect the cable connecion to the board. The larger 2 wires are for the heater. The smaller 2 are for the sensor. Pull gently on the larger wires to see if one is loose. If they seem fine unscrew the 4 wires and remove the heater board and reflow the solder for the two connections for the heater. You need a soldering iron. Put the wires back in and test it just hanging like this. If still broken time to check underneath the UM. Or check the voltage with a voltmeter at this end of the wiring and on the plate.
