Original+ MINTEMP Error on first setup

Recommended Posts

Finished assembling the Original+ kit. Beautiful instructions, amazing craftsmanship on the unit itself. The *only* problem is that it doesn't work.

The unit passes the Cura setup test, including temp sense.

On my first print attempt, the head starts heating up, and when it gets to about 190/220, the unit throws a MINTEMP error and shuts down the heater.

I wiggled the wires. Reseated the plugs and wires for fan, PT100, Heater, heated pcb for the build plate. Power cycled both myself and the machine.

Every forum post I read tells a different MINTEMP story. From firmware to EMI, to pinched cables.

One thing of note, which might not be a thing, is that I've never heard the fan work. But, since the unit's never gotten hotter than 190, probably there's no need for a fan just yet.

I have the Ultimaker Original+ It's 30 hours old.

Thanks!

Will

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
