Re: Rumba plus board hotbed not heating

Yes I did check. Fuse is OK. My workaround with MOSFET works just fine. I even think it might be safer approach, specially since Rumba board seems to behave strange sometimes. For example from time to time when I turn it on it get's stuck and wont work. If I leave it for few hours its and turn it on...

This works without problems, but my OCD is not accepting this (yet) as a permanent solution. Does anybody knows - how good is the on-board MOSFET compared to external one? I read here that th...

I managed to get the board functional for most of the things (steppers in all axis, LCD with buttons, thermistors, endstops, fans ..), however I cannot get the hotbed heating to work.
