Product Recall Notice

Announcement

RECALL

Due to product defects of the Melzi boards, the previous batch of boards (From 12/2013 to 03/2014) has problems that can cause the printers to not work correctly on some 3D printers.  The main problems are the heatbed and extruder thermistors are using resistors that are 10kohms instead of 4.7Kohms. Secondly, The MOSFTEs for the heatbed used the 10N06 which can only take 10A current (now changed to the 35N06).

Please note, the Melzi boards currently from geeetech.com are only recommended to work with 12V, so please do not use 24V on these boards.

  • Hello I just received one of your board and it has ATmega 644P with the 10k resistors and the 10N06 exactly as specified in your recall notice, how can I do to get the pieces to fix the heatbed problem?
