Platform heater last 50 mins before went broken

Post by amd-tec » Fri Dec 27, 2013 5:21 pm

Today I replaced long waited platform heater cable, worked fine for 50 mins then it began
to cool...yes, great feelings specially when I waited the cable for several weeks.
Measured the cables, they where ok, but the heater itselfs seems to be broken.
Is it me only or usually happens thing?

I found that the connections to the contacts must be cleaned all, I use contact cleaner 3 in 1 professional. I also had problems with the heater nozzle and platform, now do maintenance every three months and clean all contacts and has improved 100%. Clean up the contacts on the board for each axis , all.

Thanks for the advice Jose, I'll keep that on my mind.
Measured from wire end (contactor) to heater it was ok. The small wire ends from heater doesn't give signal.
Have the old heater for reference where cables are broken so I measured the heater and it gave a signal.
I think I'm going to take working heater and replace the broken one.
