e3d v6 upgrade getting thermal sensor error on my Ultimaker 2

Posted · e3d v6 upgrade getting thermal sensor error on my Ultimaker 2

so i may have gotten a little carried away with the micro-torch to clear a clogged nozzle and i MAY have melted the thermocouple to the heater block. so i took opportunity of this time to upgrade to a E3d kit. i bought the 12v kit with 3mm fittings to use with the ultimaker. i just finished installing it and i'm getting some error for the thermal sensor. it is plugged in. so idk why its throwing this fit. i did not do any firmware update. is that needed? iv seen Youtube videos of these kits being installed along with an extruder too. however I'm sticking with the stock extruder and didn't think i would need the firmware update? anyone have any luck upgrading to the e3d kits?

    Hi @danz409,


    Well, this one do not fit you printer very well.  You'll need a 24 V heater and this "thermistor" is not as accurate as the PT100 platinum thermistor. (This is the one used in UM2).


    The better choice would be to upgrade to "the Olsson block".

    You could use the same heater and temp sensor as on an standard UM2, well if the wires is not ruined.?


    And sure the firmware need to be changed for the E3d kit.. I bought this kit in Japan, just because it was cheap, -but I'll never going to install this on my UM2+.


    Good luck
