There is usually an error message in the UI when that happens. Official support at glowforge can look at the machine logs to see. Email them ad give the approx. time and your time zone to help them narrow it down.

First thing to do is turn off the machine and double check that the white ribbon cable is securely clicked into place.


Temperature inside the machine can cause that. Are you within these limits?

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).


There is also a sensor for the carriage fan to tell if it is spinning enough. Magnetic fields will mess with the motor and make it not spin, and that will stop the machine and give you the yellow light also.
