My system has now been on a cooling status for the last 8 days. That evening the first batch of cutting went smoothly. When I changed out the materials for the next batch, the system started to run then gave me the yellow light and the system stated that it was cooling down.
I have had times in the past where the system needed to cool. I just waited and left it go. I had one time before where the yellow light had come on last year. But in a day or so I had upgraded the cooling in the area and made sure it was below the requested 70ish degrees needed to work well.
This time the yellow light has come on and nothing has changed. The ambient temperature is below 70 and it goes straight to yellow light and a cooling notice within seconds of the system turning on.
I have not been able to get this message to clear off and have the unit realize its cooler than it needs to be.
My exhaust fan was thoroughly cleaned the day before and the I had no issues engraving and cutting acrylic for trophies the first go around. Is there a sensor or thermometer that could be malfunctioning?
There are a number of sensors, so yes ( ) that could definitely be your problem. A staff member can see what’s up from the background and now that you’ve posed here you’ve opened a ticket so they’ll be on it ASAP. They do try to get to completely unusable machines as quickly as possible so fingers crossed you hear soon!
A problem that often shows up is not actually the temperature but the ribbon connecting the head and the plug in is extremely sensitive to any kind of bad connection and can look fine but turn out to be the problem particularly showing up as a overheating problem.
You mention having cleaned the exhaust fan. Did you check the other two fans? There is a tiny fan on the back of the head, and a medium sized fan at the back of the carriage. You have to take the head off of the carriage, the belt off the gantry, and the carriage off the gantry, in order to get to the mid-sized one.
Pick up the printer head and wire ribbon. Make sure the tab on the wire ribbon is facing up. Slide the ribbon back into the head until it clicks.
As shown, lower the printer head over the metal plate so that it rests next to the two round posts. Then push it gently away from you – you’ll feel a “click” as magnets pull the printer head until it sits snugly atop the metal plate.
