Mintemp error

Post by TylerDanger » Sat Jun 08, 2019 2:22 pm

My taz 5 is getting a mintemp error message after i loosened the heat sink to fix a jam. This wire is sticking out, I assume the temp sensor. When I touch it to tube between the heat sink and block (I forgot what that's called) it turns on normally. Did I accidentally rip this wire apart? There is a small wire still wrapped around the tube I assume it is making contact with. Any advice on how I should go about fixing it?

Hey TD,

Yeah, it looks like you damaged the thermistor. Luckily they are inexpensive and easy to replace.

You can find a new thermistor for your tool head here: ... thermistor

You can use these installation instructions as a guide here: ... -assembly/

Please see step 5.
