Is my heatbed broken?  

Trusted Member

I have a one week old MK3S and after having difficulties with getting my prints to stick I suddenly noticed that I could touch my 90° bed without burning myself.

When I measure the heatbed with my IR temperatur meter it reads about 75°C in the middle to middle-left region and on the right middle side I get 37°C and all other places are between 37 to 45°C. This is measured 25minutes after I turned on the heatbed to 90°C.

I guess the heatbed is broken?
All cables and connectors are tight and fit, no errors that I can find in the LCD.

I have e-mailed Prusa support but maybe you guys can help me out with any ideas.

Hi Sw3de 

I would go to the eShop page, and wait 5 seconds, the chat window should open in the bottom right hand corner, 
Use your order number and ask for assistance

Hello Joan!

How are you this lovely day?
I was going to take it via the chat but I was told that there was an estimated waiting time for about 30min and I didn't have the patience to sit and wait. So now I'm waiting for a response on my e-mail instead 🤣 

I ordered a new heatbed from Sweden yesterday because I suspect it will take some time for me to have a replacement here and as I mentioned earlier, I'm somewhat impatience.

I can't think of anything else than the heatbed being broken so I'll just have one as a spare in the future.
