    Hello peeps. I just finished building my Peta, got the LLL error on the W1209, so I switched the polarity of the diode. Now my heater doesn’t seem to want to get past 90 degrees Celcius. The thermometer probe is firmly attached, so it’s not that. I have bought everything from the recommended parts list. My heater is 12V 40W, and my PSU 12V 120W, so I don’t think that it’s not enough power from the PSU. I’ve followed the instructions of setting up the W1209 to the letter. Any suggestions or fixes for this? Thanks in advance.
