I took apart my head to try and solve a blockage problem on my U2, and the heater catridge came out just fine. But when I'm trying to put it back in it wont go all the way in, and I dont want to damage it by using force. Any suggestions?

    It sticks out quite a bit - maybe it's normal.  If it's in half way then it will probably be fine.  It sticks out much more than the sensor (which can potentially go in all the way).

    Thats what i initially thought. However when trying to attach the base with the fans on again, it wouldnt line up because the heat cartridge was pushing against he metal, indicating it should be going in a little further.

    You put the base with the fans on it backwards.

     

    The angled edge faces the front of the printer to hide the heater block visually.
