I’ve had my Glowforge since the end of September and it’s been really great. It’s done a couple funny things from time to time, but nothing a power off and on couldn’t handle.
Tonight, however, I needed to work on a project so I turned it on to calibrate while I got my material ready. After a few minutes I opened it up, removed the crumb tray and put in my thicker material and some padding to bring it to height. As I was adjusting the materials the unit suddenly turned off. Assuming it was just a weird bug I flipped the back switch, waited a few seconds and turned it back on. Nothing. I turned it off, waited more seconds and back on. Still nothing.
I live in NY and the weather the last few days has dropped a lot, both outside and in my room where the forge sits. I thought maybe the vent was allow too much cold air in so I unhooked the hose and blew warm air in to bring everything back up to room temperature. It didn’t really seem that cold to begin with, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt. Still nothing.
After trying a few other things (checking the circuit and swapping to another outlet, etc.) and waiting longer intervals before tries, I am still not having luck. As it stands the unit is a brick. Has anyone else had troubles like this?
