Heat Runaway or Calibration Error?

I've printed less than 10 items so far (it's new.) 

 

After the first 2-3 prints, I started noticing that no matter what filament I select the temp goes to up 250 and the bed to 90. I can tune it back down but what is causing this?

Just to add - my next print I just did I set the bed to 77 degrees. It started fine then 10 minutes later it was at 110 degrees.

If you are working with PrusaSlicer you must slice with the right selected filament. Various filaments are already available by default.

Yes, it looks like not selecting the correct material in slicer was the problem. Thank you!

Note to self: It helps to read the manual 🙂
