    Hello E3D and hello fellow 3D Printer user.
    As the title says i had a little misfortune after i tried to install my new E3Dv6 Lite.
    After attaching it to my Printer and upon first heat up, the hotend clogged.
    No biggie i thought, i had not put the bowden tube in correctly, next time i do it better.
    Tried that 2 times after that, and always the hotend clogged again. the filament melted and put so much force in there so that the PTFE liner pushed outwards....
    and then it happened.... i wanted to disassemble it to clean the clog and then the thermocouple broke:

    Is it possible to repair this with soldering? I assume the solder will melt again , given the temperatures in the hotend. So do i have to buy a new thermocouple?

    Greetings,
    Makerbro

    Just for future reference, that is a thermistor not a thermocouple.
