Cable connector for heated bed getting very hot on controller side.


As the title says, I just noticed that the connector for the print bed on the back of the controller is VERY hot at the end of a print. I know it draws a lot of current, but is this to be expected? Prefer not to start fires, as a general rule.

This is a TAZ 5, by the way.


The connector used on the taz 4 and 5 isn’t rated for the full possible amperage. There are retrofit suggestions in the forum here that have been tested to work, the thread is here

Alternatively you can eliminate the fitting and run wire directly.

Thanks as always! I ordered one of those metal connectors, and am probably going to just run the wire directly in the mean time. Thanks again!
