Plate temperature depends on the PLA you are using. I use 45C-60C for the PLAs I print. More importantly is to ensure your bed is CLEAN; I usually wipe it with acetone or glass cleaner. Secondly, ensure you are 'squishing' your first layer enough. You may try turning your Z-axis knob one click closer.

If you bed height is correct and it's not sticking to PEI you can try scuffing the PEI surface slightly with steel wool to help with adhesion.
