FDM - Shut Down!!

The power in the FDM 1650 we have goes out just after a file is sent for
build. The envelope temperature shoots up to 74 Deg C and the machine shuts
down. To avoid this, I normally reduce the temperature to 67 Deg C and once
the build starts, I raise it up again to the normal 70.
