UM S5 Capacitive Sensor Tray/Fan Bracket has Loose Sheetmetal Part [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UM S5 Capacitive Sensor Tray/Fan Bracket has Loose Sheetmetal Part [SOLVED]

Hi, my UM S5 extruded plastic up past the silicone seal and into the space in the print head surrounding the extruders.  I eventually got the plastic out, but I seem to have broken something in the lower fan bracket tray, because there is a sheet metal part floating around, and I cannot get the new silicone seal to lock into the various slits for the tabs on the seal as a result of this thing floating around.

 

My S5 is the older version (has the UltiBot logo on the sides, rather than the newer version with the U) if that's relevant.

 

Here's a brief video clip showing the sheet metal part that floats freely around: 

 

Strangely enough, the replacement capacitive sensor tray doesn't seem to include this free-floating sheet metal piece (https://fbrc8.com/products/capacitive-sensor-parts-ums5-s3).

 

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to reattach this piece or get replacement parts?

Thanks,

Caleb

    Never mind, I realized that the silicone sleeve has long, thin tabs that surround this sheet metal part and hold it in place relative to the holes in the capacitive sensor tray.
