    $\begingroup$ You need to figure out if the problem is (physically) related to nozzle, the bed, or both, or none. Surroundings / conditions could be of importance. Coud you include information where do you use the printer? Is there relatively warm (like apartment) or rather cold (like basement, or tin garage in winter)? Do you have drafts? etc. Otherwise it could be electronics: do you feel any notions of heating when you touch the bed or (much more carefully!) the nozzle? $\endgroup$ – octopus8 Jan 27 at 23:20

    $\begingroup$ This is a Thermal Runaway Eror. We need more information, best a temperature graph. $\endgroup$ – Trish Jan 28 at 20:10
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, but this question cannot be answered, this question needs more information to be able to be answered. Troubleshooting the cause, you should create some G-code files where you e.g. heat up only the bed M190 or only the hot end M109, or heat up the hot end and turn on the fan M106, etc... $\endgroup$ – 0scar Jan 29 at 10:05

Someone with experience using an Ender may give a more specific answer to you question. This is a general answer, not for a specific model.

"Soon enough" is saying the printer timed out before reaching temperature.

  1. Do you see the temperature increasing on both the hot end and bed? If one doesn't, that's where the failure occurs.

  2. Are you setting a temperature higher than you have ever used on this printer? If so, check to see if you are beyond the printers capability.

  3. The hotend will reach temperature first. Does it reach the target temperature? If so, the issue is probably with your bed heater. If not, the issue is with your hot end.

  4. If you are pushing the extremes of your heaters, especially the bed heater, and your printer isn't in an enclose, you may need and enclosure to run that temperature.

Once you determine where the issue is at, there are things to can do to determine what is failing.
