You're right - if I did set 80° and it ends up at 105 thats for shure an error as well.

Support wants me to record two videos in parallel and to take note of the time between the heated bed reaches target temperature and the error occurs.

Will have to prepare a bit to make this possible...

Take a look and make sure the Z-Axis screws are not tightened down. This would be my first thought. Secondly this seems like a mechanical issue being that it happens across multiple prints. Send us a ticket so we can better assist you further.

I have a question why should NOT these screws be tightened?

To let the Z axes keep vertical to horizontal direction by nature gravity. Over-tighten may bind the system.

One more question, then, would not the mother have to worry about that? Or just not be dressed that tight?

Actually in factory, we tighten the screws by hand. Stop when feel resistance, then loose a half turn back.

I would check/replace the ribbon cable. When mine broke I got random temp fluctuations and random errors/problem.
