Heated bed replacement: where to find?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Heated bed replacement: where to find?

When doing some other repairs on my UMO+ I managed to damage the connector on my heated bed, resulting in detaching all soldering connections (yeah, stupid, I know). Obviously I want to fix this, so I can bring my printer back to life. Only I'm not much of a hero in soldering electronics (and missing the right tools), and I'm not sure if it can actually reverse the damage done. So I think my best option is to replace the entire bed with a new one. But every UM upgrade kit out there is either sold out or sold for ridiculously high prices, so that's not an option. My only source so far seems to be Chinese webshops (link) or eBay (link).

 

So I have two questions for you: 

  1. Is this a reliable replacement part? And will it work on my UMO+ without any major changes (voltage, connectors, UMO+ vs UM2, etc)? 
  2. Do you have any experience ordering from these kinds of sources? Or do you know of any good alternatives for sourcing a new heated bed (for a reasonable price)?

    The heatbed pcb including a 4-wire cable is available from a well sorted reseller (i.e. a preferred reseller as Ultimaker calls them).
