    hey guys i have just recieved the e3d v5 hotend for my printer. as the original hot end Teflon cartridge got clogged over night and overheated and broke off at the weakest point. (i hear this has happened to a lot of k8200 owners)

    how do i soldier the 40 ohm transistor to the e3d fan. i assume you just cut the red wire of the fan then solder the resistor to each end of the red wire. then connect it into the blue mains socket on the board. this was not clear in the instructions on how to install the e3d v5 on the k8200 printer. please help i do not want to damage the board or the fan. thank you for your time
