Problems with Heat Sensor

Recommended Posts

I may have stripped the wire out of the heat sensor. What to do from here?

Just to give the background of what has happened up until now, I've had a cascading failure when trying to change the nozzle of my Ultimaker 2+. The nozzle would not come out, and I there was a ton of residue on the heater block. So I took the assembly apart to clean it up. But the nozzle wouldn't come out. So I read up and watch some tutorials on removing the heater block. I heated up the block with a heat gun and slowly pulled on the temp sensor wire, but I think the wire stripped.

The end result, I'm pretty sure the sensor is still in the block. Is there any way to get the wire back into the sensor?

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
