HotEnd Blob!

This Happend this morning,  I managed to remove it and clean the nozzle/hotend  but i broke one of the thermostat wires. 

I ordered a full new hotend but who knows when will that arrive. 

is it too dangerous to twist the wire wrap then in electrical tape and keep it running for now ?

RE: HotEnd Blob!

Thermistor is one of the safer parts to mess with. Low current, low voltage. 100K ohms or there about.

I would slip a piece of shrink sleeve on, solder it, position the sleeve, then hit it with a source of heat.

Probably wind up as good as new. Just don't let the two bare leads touch each other. That won't work.
