Broken thermistor wire on R1+



  • My hubby and I just got our R1+ last week. When we took it out of the box, the hot end was hanging loose. We reconnected it and managed to get a couple of small things printed (several failed prints). Then the thermistor wire snapped in a place where we can't get it soldered back on. We contacted the customer support and are hoping they send a replacement part, but in the meantime, is there any thermistor we could get and use?

    @erd060911 The only thing that you can do in the interim is to purchase a replacement hexagon hot end kit for the R1+. I looked on the Robo site, but they are sold out. I saw a couple on Amazon so you may want to search there.



  • As I get deeper into my R1+ it made sense to have a couple of these on hands. Indeed, Robo3D is not supporting this printer, anymore. They sent me an email to find a common thermistor in a canister.
    I found what appears to be compatible thermistors on eBay and will follow up when they arrive and I am able to try one of them.
