Did I just destroy my hotend thermistor?

My was replacing my heatbreak from the Bondtech back to the original and I was being stupid and tightened the set screw instead of loosening it.  Did I just destroy my thermistor?

Probably not (as seen on photo). Just put it back in and observe temperature on display.

RE: Agree

I agree with BogdanH.  Hook it back up and see if your sill register room temperature.  If it registers 0 then replace it.

It registers

Well that's a relief, it still works.  Hotend registers at 18C and the room is at 65F.

RE: Thermistors

As long as you are careful with the wires, you will likely not kill a thermistor.  The most common cause it trying to remove it form the heatblock and the wires will become for fragile with time and heat.
