K8200 hot end part missing, and resistance reading on thermistor

Hi there,

I’m currently building my K8200. In the manual it says to insulate the soldered thermistor for the hot end with a white sock. I’m sorry to say there was no such sock in the kit I got. Are there any alternatives I can apply or do you have any suggestions where I can buy this sock? I addressed the issue with my reseller, but I don’t really have a lot of confidence in the outcome, since until now they have remained silent.

Also, when I measure the resistance across the thermistor, it reads 120-130 kOhm instead of the 70-100 kOhm indicated in the manual. Is it ok to keep using my current thermistor under these circumstances?

Kind Regards,
