Print bed not heating

Post by rwilly » Tue Feb 14, 2017 10:21 pm

Just got my M2. Went through all the bells and whistles in the Quick Start program. Everything worked okay until I got to the print section and turned the print bed heater on. It won't go any higher than 25 degrees C. Supposed to go to 70 degrees C. Due to this my M2 won't even print the test pieces. Left the heater on for an hour and it didn't budge above 25 degrees C. Tried changing the required bed temperature to 0 and it still won't print.

Call this an operator error. I checked the main cable where it plugs into the machine and found that I plugged it in at an angle and the end socket wasn't attached. Plugged it in properly and.... it works great now. You have to be smarter than the machine.
