Ambient Temperature Watchdog on MINI??

Hi all,

Can anyone confirm if the watchdog will "watchdog" and refuse to preheat or load filament if the ambient temp is too low?

Just brought my machine home from work for our "plaguecation" and have it in a pretty cold shop.    

Bed and nozzle reading at 10/11c.  

Getting a lot of restarts and it doesn't want to go.

Upgraded to 4.0.4 after getting a couple of blue screens.  Not getting that anymore, but the watchdog is still grumpy.

Thanks!

After messing around, I have found that you can kind of use the bed as a space heater. 

I think the bed let me use the preheat commands once I got it up to about 13 or 14c.  I cranked the bed to 60, moved the nozzle above the middle of the bed, and let the bed warm up the nozzle.

Once the nozzle got to 16c, I could use all the preheat functions as normal.
