Heating failed, Printer halted, Please reset.

I get this error when I am trying to heat the bed to 100°C, it happens after about 80°C.
Sometimes I don't get it for a few days, then, like yesterday it happened 5 or 6 times while heating the bed.
I have reset, switched it off and back on again, but it happens again, then it will work OK no problems.
When it is finally up to temperature it works fine.
Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks

Les

Do you have a sheet of cork under your heated bed? Are you using a MOSFET?

It is a stock printer.
I have reduced the temperature of the bed to 80 degs for ABS and have had no problem.
For ABS I am using this seems to work OK for me.

Hi Paul
This Mosfet thing, is it easy to install, it doesn't look complicated.
Also which one did you use?

Shane's video is pretty easy to follow on how to install. Mine's worked great

Thanks Paul, this looks so easy I should be able to do it.
