I would try flashing it again, this just seems like a software issue to me not a mechanical issue, could also be the mainboard itself is the issue though.
I re-downloaded and flashed the same firmware. manually set my temp as a test and it heated to 235 just fine. now i'm starting a print using the same gcode as before and so far it's pre-heated to 235 as it should. it seems to have been fixed via the firmware update.nathan0876 wrote: ↑Aug 16, 2018 8:52 pmI would try flashing it again, this just seems like a software issue to me not a mechanical issue, could also be the mainboard itself is the issue though.

In the end, it was a wire break in the thermistor wire: while in home position the wire still had contact but when the wire was bending during print, it lost contact. Might even be a thread still here on the forum incl. my temperature graphs, which looked pretty "wild".
Long story made short: since you got octoprint running: preheat, start jiggling the wire bundle around and watch the temperature graph, this is how i eventually found what was happening.. When i wiggled, the temperature changed.
