I have quickly reviewed this reference design here.
And the pinouts here.
When I put the ohm meter between TH1 and TH2 pins it shows open circuit. What I don't know is the default
value of the thermistor. Any idea ?
I need to know it , because I'm going to invest to buy new filament unit and it's higher in cost.
I think I need to replace both filament and and solder it back. The thermistor assembly is so tide and complicated
to home hack in.
Is anyway to know precisely what's the default ohmic value of that thermistor ?
Please review and add suggestions to my calculation on that loop.
where if the thermistor resistance is 'x', then
Is that simple to calculate like that using the reference schematic ? Will that value should be there and work ?
How to find graphs or particle values on that thermistor ?
As I guess the issue is when the thermistor have infinite resistance [open loop] it will not let the feedback to let it
switch on the traic there.
Asking for suggestions , and also need to know places to buy that item.
