Welcome to this troubleshooting guide for fixing low hashrate or faulty hashboard issues on the Bitmain Antminer L3+ ASIC. As an owner or operator of an L3+ miner, you may have encountered problems with the hashrate dropping or hashboards failing. This can be a frustrating issue to deal with and can impact the profitability of your mining operations. However, by following a systematic troubleshooting process and identifying the root cause of the issue, you can resolve the problem and get your miner back up and running at peak performance. This guide will outline the steps you can take to troubleshoot and fix low hashrate or faulty hashboard issues on your Bitmain Antminer L3+ ASIC.

Troubleshooting Steps to fix “hashrate is low, or a hashboard is faulty” on Bitmain Antminer L3+ ASICs

  1. Verify that the miner is configured correctly and that the pool settings, wallet address, and other parameters are all correct. Ensure that the miner is running the latest firmware and is compatible with your mining software.
  2. Ensure that the power supply provides enough power to the miner and that the voltage is stable. Check the power supply cables and connectors to ensure they are properly connected and there are no loose or damaged cables.
    • Test PSU and controller using a known good PSU or switching cables between hash boards.
    • Turning on PSU should make the PSU fan turn on. If not, replace PSU.
    • To switch cables between hash boards, power off the miner and switch one faulty hash board’s data cable with a non-faulty hash board’s data cable.
    • Adjust only one side of the hashboard.
    • This helps eliminate problems with the hashboard data cable and control board.
    • If the issue remains, the hashboard might be defective.
  3. Check the miner’s temperature to ensure that it is not overheating. High temperatures can cause the hashrate to drop or the hashboard to fail. If the miner is too hot, adjust the fan settings or consider adding additional cooling to the unit.
  4. Ensure that all cables and connectors are correctly connected and that there are no loose or damaged cables. Check the hashboard connections specifically, as these are often the source of issues with low hashrates or faulty hashboards.
    • Keep PSU connectors and controller cable connected to one hash board.
    • Disconnect cables from the other two hash boards.
    • This isolates the problem and helps to identify a faulty hashboard.
    • Check the status of the connected hash board on the miner’s web interface or monitor.
    • If the status shows a normal hashrate and no errors, the hash board is working correctly.
    • If the status indicates errors or abnormal hashrate, replace the hash board.
  5. Ensure that the mining software is functioning correctly and compatible with the miner. If the software is not working correctly, try reinstalling or updating the software to the latest version.
  6. Ensure that the mining pool is functioning correctly and that there are no issues on their end that could affect your hashrate. You can check the pool’s website or contact their support team to confirm everything is working as expected.
  7. Ensure that the miner has a stable internet connection and that there are no router or other networking equipment issues. If the connection is unstable, try resetting the router or contacting your internet service provider.
  8. You may need to replace the board if you have ruled out all the other possible causes and determined that the issue is a faulty hashboard. Contact the manufacturer for a replacement hashboard or purchase one from a reputable third-party supplier.
  9. If you cannot diagnose or fix the issue on your own, seek the help of a professional. Contact the manufacturer’s support team or a reputable ASIC repair service provider to help diagnose and repair any ASIC mining-related issues.
