    Hi, I'm new to this forum and to e3d products. I just received my life6 12v kit and while assembling the hotend, I did the resistance test on the heater cartridge and got a reading of 1 ohm. So I got my other meter and checked it and also got 1 ohm. The cartridge is marked as 12v 30w, so it should be getting 4.8 ohm. I'm just wondering if this is normal, and or if can be fixed in the firmware.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Nathan.

    That's not good, I'd recommend contacting your supplier for an exchange.
