Why is my Minecraft slime farm not working?
Since other hostile mobs can spawn in other caves around your slime spawning area, you need to make sure those areas are illuminated to prevent the other hostile mobs from spawning. Since Mobs will spawn within 128 blocks from you that creates a large area that you need to light up underground.
Why is nothing spawning in my slime farm?
Slimes are shy – they won’t spawn if other mobs are nearby. Assuming your area is in the correct zone (inside a Slime spawn chunk and within ~40 blocks from bedrock), you also need to check the ravine nearby and light it with torches to keep other mobs from spawning nearby and stopping the Slimes from spawning.
How do you fix slime not spawning?
Make sure there are no caves with zombies or any other mobs in the vicinity. Quite a few players don’t know about the spawning mechanic of slimes. Slimes don’t spawn when a player is under 24 blocks. Slimes will also instantly despawn if a player is not under 128 blocks.
How long does it take for slime to spawn?

How far is slime farm from AFK?
Remember, slimes only spawn if you are farther than 24 blocks away. Unfortunately, they will also despawn if you are more than 32 blocks away. With this farm, it’s best to create a small area within this range to AFK in.

In slime chunks, slimes can spawn below Y level 40 even if the light level is higher than 7. To find slime chunks, players have to dig deep down to Y level 30 and mine out a 4-block tall area. They can use F3+G to see the chunk borders in Java Edition.
