Heating failed

Recommended Posts

My heater block keeps shutting off once reaching the desired print temp or will shut off following an error after printing for a while "heating failed" displayed on my ulticontroller (screen appears faded when error appears).

Cura seemed to reset a week ago, deleting my saved printer configurations. Maybe this is playing a role?

What should I do to fix this issue? Is it hardware or firmware problem?

I think I discovered the cause of the issue. I forgot I had added and activated plug-ins shortly before experiencing the heating error. After removing the plug-ins, I was able to print for 30 mins with no issues and the print quality was pretty good. I stopped the print because I had to go somewhere and did not want to leave the printer unattended.

I will tinker with the plug-ins and post which one it ends up being the cause.
