Change temperature sensor and Heater

Posted · Change temperature sensor and Heater

Hello everybody!

I was not able to re-use my temperature sensor and my heater because you are stuck inside the extrusion block.

Now I took a block from olsson 3DSolex, but I have to remove the old block with the temperature sensor and the heater and sostiutire everything with new parts.

There is a video that shows how to properly carry out the operation of replacing heater and the temperature sensor?

    I have replaced about 10 blocks and the damn temp sensor is VERY HARD to get out. But I always seem to manage. I use a sewing needle to pry it up but first I spray WD40 into the racks around it (makes a mess - put newspaper or rag on the glass to protect the glass from oil) then I heat it to 180C and hold block with pliers (so I don't burn fingers). Once it reaches 180C I cut power (if heater or temp sensor slips out while heating the heater will quickly head for 1000C and glow like a light bulb!). Then I hold block with pliers so I don't burn fingers and pry out the temp sensor with the needle until just enough sticks out that I can grab the metal part of the sensor with needle-nose pliers and twist like a screw back and forth while sliding it out.

    From the arduino, you mean the boardright?

    Sorry I didn't give you what you 'requested'. Sure that videos will give you a starting point.

    The part you need about connecting cables it's as easy as taking out the one unused and pluging the new one.

    Check this video for that part requested...

    Look at minute 00:59 or so

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
