    Cube 3, T14 error code

    Hi!

    New to the forum so dont shoot me if the question is asked before

    Recently got a Cube3. Worked good for a couple weeks, but now an experiencing the T14 error code (T12-221-L0-S1).

    "T14-T24 Low rate of temperature change detected - The rate of temperature increase is below the expected rate of change."

    Have observed it and it starts to print ok, but after a couple minutes the heater gets cold, the filament hardens and i throws the E14 code.
    Only on the left ABS, right PLA works great.

    Have tried to "block" the fan to see if it helps, does not help.

    Seen on the forum that people have had problems with the power supply? Is it normal that it gets hot? I have ordered a new one, but it probably takes a few weeks before it arrives.

    Can add that from good help from this forum, it have gotten the software upgrade and runs with universal filament and a tube straight down the nozzle.

    Is there any other things I should check?

    Thanks

    Most probable the power brick has not enough power to handle the temps... How weird (or not?) most end up with this issue...

    Got the new power supply. Did not help.
    Still getting T14 while printing ABS.
    What is my next move?

    Move the printer into a warmer room. I had one printer that would throw Txx errors in a cold warehouse and worked fine in the office area.

    Thanks guys.
    Set the room-thermostat to "sauna", and now it actually prints ABS

    This is usually caused by a massive build up of filament between the bottom cover and heat block, which acts as a heat sink. If you pop the bottom cover off (it's kind of a pain) and don't see that issue present then it could also be caused by a pinched wire in the printhead assembly. A breakdown and careful reassembly should correct this.

    If you do find a massive collection of filament stuck to the heat block, it will come off easily if you fire up the change cartridge function and allow it to get to standby temp.

    A good test is to purge and then immediately start an ABS print. If that works then it means it gets to temp in time with a head start and the power supply is providing enough power but one of the two issues above is slowing it down.
