Error stopped - Temp sensor bed

Posted (edited) · Error stopped - Temp sensor bed

Hi

Tonight after a few weeks without any printing I switched from PLA back to ABS.

I then heated up the bed and initiated a new print. Once the bed and nozzle were at the right temp, the bed was raised to start printing.

But that's when things went wrong. As the bed was moving up it sounded like a missed step and I was instantly graced with a "Temp sensor bed" error.

I power cycled the printer and the print sensor seems to work and give credible figures.

Here's a video of the bed being raised and lowered. At 00:35 the weird sound can be heard (and again the printer goes in error mode). Surprisingly I've been able to lower/raise the bed a few times without problems. But most attempts (usually raising) fail with that weird noise.

 

Note: buzzing at 00:15 is unrelated to the printer . I just got a text on my smartphone...

Cables going to the bed seem fine and are out of the way when bed is travelling up or down.

Any idea where to look ?

Thanks

    I've come to think that it might indeed be a simple connection issue. I've wiggled the cable on the bed end and have been able to move the bed up/down multiple times and run a 1-hour print.

    The brief connection issue causes the printer to go into error mode. Maybe that brutal change somehow interrupts the code running the stepper motors for a few cycles hence what sounds like a missed step ?

    Anyway I'll try check the cable tonight a bit more carefully.

    Good to have the build manual. Thanks.

    Hi All,

    I've got the same error with after the SAME weird sound (at 00:35 in your video)

    I've check the wire, the connector and every things OK but my Ultimaker say "ERROR STOP - Temp sensor Bed"

    Can you help me ?

    Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
