Glowforge always in cooling down mode

I’ve had my glowforge for about a year and recently it is constantly on “cooling down” even for prints that are 1 min. I’m not sure what to do. I’ve cleaned the inside of my glowforge and I live in Miami but my glowforge is inside the house that is always 71-75 degrees. I dont know if its that I have the tube outside releasing all the fumes or my machine is messed up.

Yes it definitely could be warm air coming back into the unit from outside. Do you use a blast gate to block off the hose when not in use? You could put a thermometer inside to check the temp.
Here are the min and max temps for each unit:
The Glowforge Basic is designed for use between 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 Celsius) and 75°F (24°C). The Pro has an expanded operating range up to 81°F (27°C).


@valdesstephanie98 I have noticed that if the room is humid, even if its cool, the unit will be in cooling down mode more often, try a dehumidifier?


I’m so sorry to hear your Glowforge is having issues with always cooling down.

I’ve made a small change on our end. Could you give it another try and let me know if you’re still running into any issues?
