    The plug from the pt100 to the extension wire isnt making a good connection and i keep getting mintemp errors. I was going to do away with the connectors and just solder the wires but that did not end well(new pt100 doh). Any suggestions? I just need to wiggle the connector slightly to get a connection again but cant chance printing anything until I fix this.

    Soldering the wires would help, or making a new connector. Contact E3D for a replacement though

    Make sure you super gentel with the PT100 in the future because of the wires gauge they are rather delicate.
