hi, I've been spending this afternoon freshening up my UM2, replacing Bowden tube, coupler,heater cartridge and temp. sensor (and cursing the sadistic designer!) Got everything done ok but I appear to have dislodged a connector from the board, a orange and brown wired one. There appears to be an identical unattached connector about halfway up the sleeve to the head. I haven't pulled at it for fear of disconnecting something else. Can anybody advise where they should go?

    Yes, there is a spare cable there that fills no purpose. I noticed that when I got hold of an old UM2 head for my UMO+.

    Yeah, I seem to recall something like that too... will have to dig out my pre-upgrade UM2 head when I get home, see what the spare looks like.

    Thanks guys, yes I traced it back and indeed it was the other end of the cable. Put it back together and it's working perfectly now. Thanks for the assist!
