S5 Print Core Replacement Heat element and Temp Sensor


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Print Core Replacement Heat element and Temp Sensor

My s5 got a flooded head. I was able to save the head using a heat gun... but I had to cut the wires going from the PCB on the print core to the olson block. 


Can I buy just the replacement heating element and thermocouple anywhere? I'd hate to throw away a $120 print core that is perfectly fine.

    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.

    Thats what I feared. Although my s5 prints great it will be my last ultimaker printer for reasons such as this.

    Hi @cjh83,


    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!

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
