    So my heat bed died. I purchased a dual voltage PCB type for its replacement. A test at the control board confirmed it was powered. Upon disassembling the malfunctioning one. I found it was charred and burnt where the wires connect the the heat coil. I tried to save the aluminum and stack it but i think i will get rid of the aluminum because of the time it takes to heat up. the cost for this upgrade was $12.oo.
