So, I’ve only had my TAZ about a month now, and the bed is barely able to make it up to 85 C. On the latest print, I’ve waited over an hour and it’s still at 75 C. That includes some down time from the printer getting disconnected somehow multiple times from my computer, which is another annoyance, but a different topic all together. A couple of weeks ago, It heated just fine. I could even get it hotter than 85 C.
Any solutions, diagnosis, etc. would be appreciated.
As an aside, I’ve been so disappointed with how long the bed takes to heat, that I tried to switch to PLA, but of course you all probably know the problems with PLA that plague this printer. I haven’t even had one successful print with PLA so far. The filament will not even come out of the nozzle. I’ve added PFTE tape as suggested, and will try another print tonight. Between the PLA issues and the bed issues, I’m starting to get buyer’s remorse.
