MK3S Crash and fault

I had an issue with my MK3S . It had a crash during a print and stopped. When I tried to restart I kept getting a reboot every time I tried to preheat. I tried the self test and it worked until it got to the "Hot End" and rebooted again. What I found was when the crash occurred, it had put stress on the two wires going to the heater. It had pulled back the hi-temp insulation on the heater and the wires were shorting out. I was able to get the wires separated and reinsulated and the problem disappeared.

You need to replace them eventually.  I would order a backup.

I already did. I decided to get a few extra repair items as well.
