MAXTEMP means, that maximal temperature threshold was reached. 260°C with V6 Lite hotend and 310°C with V6 Full hotend. Printer will shut down the heaters to prevent damage.

Indication MAXTEMP shown on the screen and one of the temperature readouts shows unusually high temperature.

Posible causes: 

  1. Damaged thermistor which would not be properly working all the time and under certain bend would trigger the MAXTEMP so check out the cables leading to the miniRAMBO board 
  2. Printer heats up uncontrollably when first powered after the assembly triggering the MAXTEMP. !Turn off the printer and double check your electronics assembly! - MK2/MK2S Electronics Wiring
  3. Occasional glitch - sometimes heater can be tricked to overcompensate by a blast of colder air, when suddenly removed  can cause the heater to spike over the temperature, so simply try to start the print over again - stay with the printer during this print.
