How to disassemble printer to plug in new lead to print head

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to disassemble printer to plug in new lead to print head

I have an Ultimaker 2 and have to replace the wires that go to the print head. One connects inside the back and the to the thermistor that monitors the temperature and the other I believe heats the head. Both of theses wires run from inside the printer, out the back and up through a shield (fabrics wrapping like tube that all wires route through) over the top of the printer to the print head. In the past I believe There used to be videos that showed how to disassemble the back to get to the wire connectors. Can anyone tell me where I might find this type of video or instruction? I’ll continue to look as this page is different the last time I was here. Thanks in advance for any guidance! Scott

    you could also search for the assembly manual exact title of the version I have is "um2 assembly manual V1.1 _english.pdf" its 14.5Mbytes so probably too big to be emailed. I searched on google and it found it on Github, also attached to this msg


    It is a very handy reference to have around, its helped me out on several occasions.
