Possible coolant issues, need fix!

Not technical at all so I am struggling about what to do here. Company wants to charge an arm and a leg to return the machine and send me a refurbished one, I’m in Canada so it gets even more expensive.

Pulled logs thanks to this site and it doesn’t seem to get further than ERROR: hw: Coolant monitor temperature alert (src/hw_task_errors.cpp:204)

It does also list:

1214 ERROR: api auth token request: http_code=0, result=60 (Error), details=“SSL certificate problem: certificate is not yet valid”
2022-08-10_20:40:26.79502 1218 INFO: running htpdate in case cert is not valid yet because clock is unset

If anyone has any advice or can walk me through how I may start to remedy this, I would greatly appreciate it. If its a lost cause and I’ll need to bite the bullet and send it back, let me know too.


HERE IS THE procedure to make MORE unicorn tears (coolant)

The glowforge holds One quart exactly of coolant (32 oz)
you can buy 8oz of GLYCOL for $10
Add 17 oz of distilled water – This will net you 25 oz of Unicorn tears (@30%) (coolant)

and the test strips to confirm you have the right mixture:
