Transport characteristics of Bi-2212 wire in flux-flow state were investigated under a cryocooled condition in high magnetic fields up to 14 T at various temperatures. It was observed that the heat balance affected the thermal stability of oxide superconductors. It was found that the quenching of oxide superconductor with large current capacity and large n value occurred at the current that was smaller than its critical current.
