Thats what I feared. Although my s5 prints great it will be my last ultimaker printer for reasons such as this.
I'll say this is absolutely possible to do!
The heath element have no polarity, -so it is also -with the PT100 (the platinum resistor!) 3mm size.
The heater is a 4mm heater, but not quite sure if it's a 35 or 40 W (24VDC) heater, -but sure can find.
But if you're a little handy this is absolutely possible!
This core have a life counter, but this is not an issue for this core.
What data have this core? Size and type please.
We print with thermoplastics in order to make new things -and we print spare parts for many things that cannot be fixed in any other way! So way stop here?
This one is more easy to fix, -so let's fix it!
I fear that's not possible, at least not the official way, as the printcores are -afaik- designed as consumables in whole.
Perhaps there are some replacement parts available on second market (I know that at least replacement nozzles are available), but it is and will always be a tinker-solution, which I for myself would not relay on.
