I appear to have fried my hotend’s heater resistor. I really don’t know why that happened, but I didn’t do a great job in my first build, so I’ll accept it for what it is. My printer is a RepRapPro Mendel, and it looks like I’m getting infinite resistance across that element.
Before I tear everything apart, is there any other troubleshooting I should try?
Also, I know it is a 6R8 resistor. How exactly do I identify the correct replacement part? Is it 5W dissipation?
