I have four dual material printers. Two of them are not working for the same reason:
Printing ABS with a bed temperature of 125C. The printer starts heating the bed and eventually heats the print head. At between 104C and 113C the heater no longer raises the bed temperature - it will hold around 108C. The print head reaches the correct temperature, then the printer waits for the bed to heat up. I have a screenshot of the temperature graph but cannot attach it here.
The most recent failure was on a printer that is less than a month old.
Now I cannot ship the printers to Mr Hudson due to the costs because I am in Canada. What can I do to fix this myself? Has anyone else seen this and if so what was the problem and the cure. If it is as simple as a loose connection then surely this can be prevented.
