Can't unscrew Heater Block screw, that holds the temp sensor and heater cartridge

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to replace my heater cratridge, because it is making nothing but problems on my UMO+... I noticed today, that I'm not able to unscrew the screw, that secures the temp sensor and the heater cartridge.... I already tried with heating it to 150degrees but that doesn't work either.... Do you have any suggestions?

Julian.

I had to wiggle mine back and forth(as in clockwise and counter clockwise). Then I gave it a good amount of pressure in the right direction and it came loose. Unfortunately my temp sensor was forever jammed in the block and broke off inside. I couldn’t remove the broken end and had to just replace the block with an olsson block.

    • "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.
