1. Follow the Quick Release Guide to remove the totend from the extruder assembly.
2. Unscrew the heatercore (red) and the thermistor (black) using an allen wrench. Then place them back into their respective locations on your new hotend and re-tighten the set screws.
3. When replacing the hot end, reverse the steps of the Quick Release Guide. Then find the black extruder connectors and connect the thermistor and heater core accordingly.
Where can i buy a replacement hot end fan for my R1+
The one you had under acessories is gone
I need the thermistor wire, where can I get one? I even thought about replacing the whole hot end but they are all sold out. IM TIRED OF MY $600 PRINTER BEING A BRICK OVER A $5 PART :((((((((((
Please put these back in the shop. I have been doing a lot of research online and there are A LOT of people trying to find them that are more than willing to pay. Please please please!
Where can I buy a new hot end for my R1+? this site has been sold out for 6 months now. I don't want to resort to leaving a bad review on Yelp, Youtube, facebook, Twitter, Etc.
Anybody had any luck with how or where to purchase these things?
When I call nobody answers.
Or has anyone just bought the e3d?
I've only ever seen the official R1+ heating core and thermistor one place:
They're way more expensive there than they should be -- $20 to get one thermistor shipped.
Alternatively, you can search Amazon for "NTC 3950 100K Thermistor" -- they're not the original but they work and they're super cheap, like a buck per. Note one significant caveat however -- I have not been able to find an appropriate replacement thermistor in a tiny metal can like the OEM part, they're all just bare glass beads or really long cans. I have not tried the long can versions to see if they fit. And since the R1+ holds the thermistor directly in place by a set screw, it's very easy to break the fragile glass bead. Still, even if you break four or five of them before getting one to sit nicely, it's much cheaper than the above option.
