Short-circuit, machine shuts down

Posted · Short-circuit, machine shuts down

I can't print anymore with my Ultimaker 2 due to the machine shutting down few seconds after the start of the print.

Since the setting of plate works fine, I think that it's coming from a short-circuit somewhere in the heated plate resistance or resistor. I used the machine for 25hours and lately pushed the build plate's temperature up to 100C. An electronician came to my place but couldn't help much, his comment was that the heating power should directly come from the grid, and not through a transfo. Good point !

In the meantime, I don't have a solution.

Anyone had the same issue, and could easily find some replacement parts? In Belgium?

Thanks, Xavier

    I can be completely wrong....

    Did you try to disconnect the wires from the build plate to diagnose where the short is? Be careful not to pull the connector of the board since it is surface mounted.
