UM2 Unplugged wire in print head

Recommended Posts

The filament for my Ultimaker 2 is stuck in the Bowden Tube - it does not reverse. Although I can remove it from the print head, I have no way of removing the filament from the tube. (See image below)

To make matters more complicated, once I took apart the print head (I was concerned it was somehow related to the PFTE coupler) I noticed that there is a disconnected wire within the print head. I looked around but I don't know where the wire goes and how to reattach it! (See image below)

These may be unrelated issues but I suspect they have some connection. Thanks for any help.

    • "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.
