Adhesive for heater cartridge

Posted · Adhesive for heater cartridge

Hello,

Because the nozzle of my Ultimaker 2 was damaged, i ordered a hot end pack and a heater cartridge for replacement. Unfortunately there came no adhesive with the repair kits.

What adhesive is recommended for fixing the thermosensor and the heater cartrige in the nozzle?

    Dear @KHN, thank you for your message and welcome to the forums!

    Do you have an olsson block installed or do you have the regular heater block?

    The olsson block can most easily be identified by a swappable nozzle.

    The heaterblock should have a screw on it. This screw secures both the cartridge heater and the PT100. If you loosen this, you should be able to remove the cartridge heater and PT100. You may need to wiggle them a little bit to get them out.

    Put the new ones in, and put back the screw to secure your new heater cartridge and PT100. Here are some more instructions to help you.

    Good luck!

    Dear SandervG,

    Thank you for the hint with the screw. I didn't unscrew it so i thought the PT100 was glued in. The nozzle is now replaced an the printer ready to go again.

    Thank You!

    One proposal for improvement: i had to write the message a second time, because i forgot tohit the captcha button before pressing reply. The error message came up and the message was gone. Could you perhaps keep the message, when this error comes? It might not only happen to me.

    Regards KHN
