Blinking bed heater LED, no heat
1d1 last edited by 1d1
40w hot end (new Maxiwatt 24v) and not sure on bed. However, this is a combo I've been using for a long time and the Meanwell 600 is overkill generally. I'll try to get the bed info.
Yes, I get a fault message about the 15 degree disparity when the bed stops heating and cools below target temp.
Bed = 250w
For the sake of completeness can you post your config.g and the results of M122 and M98 P"config.g"?
Have you PID tuned the bed?
Does the PSU output voltage drop at all under load?
Are the bed heater screw terminals tight?

I have not PID tuned the bed since replacing it. The PSU terminals are all tight. The bed connector is factory new (except where I changed terminals for the thermistor). In this moment of checking everything again, it is all working properly. The lowest voltage drop when all things are on simultaneously is 23.6 but it is a momentary drop and usually varies between 23.7 and 24.1
That's a lot of information! Thanks for your efforts! Dean
Thanks. Everything looks in order.
I would suggest PID tuning the bed again starting at room temp and saving the results with M500.
Hopefully it's just a fluke.
While writing the above, the heater faulted again:
rror: Heater 0 fault: temperature excursion exceeded 15.0°C (target 80.0°C, actual 64.6°C)
Thanks, @Phaedrux - I try the PID tune....
Can you post a screen shot of your temperature graph?>
The thermistor readings remain consistent. Trying to heat the hot end to 250 and the bed to 80, it reaches the target temp and gradually loses temperature until it faults - as if it can't somehow maintain that level. The temperature graph is steady and solid, reflecting exactly what is happening. Could it be the SSR is failing? The wiring all looks good and it has worked solidly for appx. 5 years. It has to be either the bed or SSR I think. And as the bed is new....
that's why I'm here trying to figure this out.
While I don't have another SSR on hand, I was just now able to find the machine specific MOSFET. I guess I'll be trying that out next.
The Duet bed heater mosfet can handle up to 18a so you could connect the bed heater directly to the Duet. No SSR or external mosfet required.
@Phaedrux Well, that would answer that question! I'll try that first.
That did it! So far at least... When I first got the machine, it was burning out cheap PSUs so the company's solution was to send out new beds and PSUs along with this monster MOSFET. I got an SSR while the boat was coming from China and all was well until a few days ago. The Black Widow was a heavily flawed machine but I have upgraded, rebuilt, and poured a huge amount of time and money into it - and learned a lot. It is currently a tank after this last attempt to get it right. Let's hope it works as it should - thanks repeatedly, @Phaedrux. You caught me in midair again!
