Thermal Runaway!



  • Hi,
    I'm new to 3d printing.
    I have been doing a lot of printing on both of my Prusa Min Plus (Month old) and the Ender 5 plus three weeks old).
    My last Ender print was a 31.5 hr print that was successful.
    I'm about 34+ hours into a 49.5 hr print and I get this error:

    THERMAL RUNAWAY!
    CyclePower! Temperature drifted
    to far from setpoint. Excessive
    part cooling, improper PID values
    or failing components can cause
    this. If problem persists, Connect
    to serial monitor.

    I powered off and powered on and I get a message If I want to continue.
    Well, of course yes, however, the nozzle didn't get hot enough to melt the filament so it just went through the motions and my print was a failure.

    In addition I've only had my printer for a few weeks, I ordered the printer with the silent board.
    I get a package from Creality and it's a board. So I have this board if the original board is toast (planning on installing the board anyways).

    How can I fix this (does it require the silent board and/or should I upgrade the hotend)

    Thanks for the help
