Re: Bed Not Heating M2 Rev. E

For anyone who stumbles on this thread in the future, replacing the MOSFET was cheap and easy and worked great, $0.92 vs $170 new RAMBo.

Re: Bed Not Heating M2 Rev. E

Thanks for all your help Ed! Talking to support over the phone, unfortunately I can't swap the connector via firmware, as the heat bed uses that 15A blade fuse, which none of the other connectors are wired to. I've got some replacement mosfets arriving tomorrow and I'll give that a shot before conde...

Re: Bed Not Heating M2 Rev. E

Just thought to swap the bed and extruded connection on the Rambo, and the bed heats right up. Rambo must be the problem, I'm assuming that mosfet. Can I replace just the mosfet or is that a symptom of a bigger problem?

Re: Bed Not Heating M2 Rev. E

Additional testing : Tried swapping the heat bed connector and the extruder connector themselves, same issue, so the connector hasn't failed. Tried the pin method all up and down both wires and the resistance stayed around 3ohms. Tried tugging up and down both wires, if there's a weak point silicone...

Re: Bed Not Heating M2 Rev. E

Is this the mosfet in question, and is it supposed to be covered in dark brown stuff? Already wiped a bunch off the top of the chip.

Re: Hotend Failures

I don't know why the barrel would be spinning in the block but just so you know you can just buy new barrels (the snapped part) ... you don't need new hot ends every time. Just drop MG a email and tell them you need just the barrels. -Steve I had no idea! How exactly do you remove/install the new b...
