Unsolved Spurious heater faults
ibash last edited by ibash
Recently I started printing with ASA which requires a higher bed temperature (85c). Every single print was getting a heater fault, so I did another PID tune of the bed at 100c. Every single print still gets a heater fault.
The only way I've found to avoid the heater faults is to preheat the bed, first to 60c or 70c then finally to my target temperature. After that I can start the print without fault.
What diagnostic information do you need to debug this?
Happy to try any other troubleshooting steps, I went through these before: https://docs.duet3d.com/en/User_manual/Troubleshooting/Heater_faults
Also it always (like 100%) triggers a heater fault unless I preheat the bed manually. So these heater faults are not really spurious, but reliable
Just thought of a hack for this... I might put M562 in daemon.g if there's no solution...

What exactly is the heater fault?
What firmware & board?
What kind of bed heater?
How is the heater configured? (post config.g)
What command are you issuing for PID?
There have been quite a few changes to heating over the last few firmware versions.
Without all the details it's impossible to give advice.
However I have found that for the nozzle heater I have, the PID values I get from RRF3.4 cause excessive overshoot when initially heating, so I had to manually tweak them a bit to avoid errors from going more than 15 degrees above the target value.
I haven't had the same issue on my bed though (240v)
- Heat is rising too slowly
- It's an aluminum bed, it's a railcore so fairly large 300x300. The printer is enclosed.
- Keenovo heater.

cc @Phaedrux maybe?
Can you try removing
M307 H0 R0.246 K0.112:0.000 D30.62 E1.35 S1.00 B0 ; Bed, with enclosure tuned at 100cfrom your config.g and re-running the tuning process with
M303 H0 S100and this time take a screen shot of the tuning process after a while so we can see the graph?
Be sure to start the tuning process from ambient temp.
Still running the tuner, can post results when done. Just realized that my config.g has "B4240" for the bed thermistor, when I think it should be B3950. Could that be the cause?
I think the problem is that it is using the wrong thermistor value, as per the graph the keenovo thermistor vs bed thermistor are way different when they should be the same. This is my mistake.
Thank you Phaedrux!
Hmm, got another heater fault today despite having changed the thermistor value and retuning.
Are you copy and pasting the results into your config?
Have you tried using M500 to save them to config-override.g and then adding M501 to the end of your config to load the values at startup?
It seems like the values aren't actually applied. Can you send
M307 H0in the gcode console and see what values it is actually using.
Is it perhaps your part cooling fan coming on and causing the temp to drop? Or is the enclosure temp different during a print versus when it's tuned?
Yep I do copy/paste the line into config.g. It looks like the values are applied correctly too:
In my config.g:
What does the temp graph look like when the error occurs? It seems weird that it expects a rate of 0.28 but actually saw a rate of 0. Is the thermistor not making good contact?

@arnold_r_clark said in Spurious heater faults:
never reach the same conclusion twice
How much variation are you seeing?
