Broke my heater - need new temperature sensor

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I broke my heater today. I only need the temperature sensor. Can anyone tell me where I can find the type that is used in my Ultimaker or would I just ask Ultimaker to send me a new heat sensor?

I tried to change nozzles and while pulling out the sensor and the heat element... well.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Cheers

Kai

The UM is using a k-type thermocouple in a metal sheath, where the sheath has no other function than mechanical protection.

can you be more specific what you damaged exactly, and/or post a picture of the damage? you have also verified that the TC is indeed not working anymore (i.e. by taking it careful out of the heater block, and heating it up with a hairdryer, and watching the temperature in print run rise from room temp to 60C?)

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
