# Disable Marlin PID, and start print manual

The thermistor of the hotend of my printer broke, at the moment I have no way to replace it, due to the global situation with the virus. In my hands I have one of these industrial PIDs which is Temperature controller+K-type couple+SSR. Is there a way to disable the PID in Marlin and start printing manually when the PID reaches the desired temperature? I just need it for PLA right now. This way I can use the printer at least until I can replace the thermistor

• so I just need to remove the M104 S... that was simple, thanks a lot. I will do it tomorrow – efirvida May 26 '20 at 4:08
