Hi! I was trying to unclog my printer (I manage) But I accidently unscrew the hotend.. What should I do in this case? since I'm not able to screw it back again. Is there a missing piece? Please see the picture:

RE: Heatsink

Nope, there is a piece broken

the small thread goes into the heater block, the big thread goes into the heatsink... and normally the thin part holds the bits together

when you put it back together you need to make sure that the nozzle and heatbreak should be screwed against each other

this is for mk3, but the process is similar for mk2
