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

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.
