Hi there, I’m hoping someone can help me out.
My 100k NTC that goes in the small hole in the heater block recently broke and i’m struggling to source a replacement as the velleman spare parts distributors in my country have proven unreliable.
I bought another one off eBay, but the glass bead was too large (2.3mm) and wouldn’t fit in the hole.
I wanted to ask 2 questions:
- are there any problems that could occur from using a third party NTC (ie not the one that official comes from velleman) as I understand different thermistors will have different temperature curves, and are there any ways around them?
- does anyone know which thermistor comes with the kit so that I can source it elsewhere? or at least the diameter of the glass bead or hole would be very helpful!
Thank you very much in advance!
