# Fixing temperature Issues on I3 Mega / Where to find spare part

I have an old Anycubic i3 Mega printer which started having issues keeping the hotend-temperature. The peak at the start of the diagram was when I was touching the cable on top of the hotend:

It also sometimes disconnects completely with a MINTEMP-Error

So it is fair to assume it might be an issue with the cable/plug to the hotend.

My problem is that I cannot find that cable anywhere on the Anycubic spare parts site. Is this maybe a "standard" cable that I can get anywhere else?

• The end itself looks like it could be a Molex connector. A picture of it unplugged may help identify it. Jan 27, 2021 at 13:53

The plastic looks ok. If you get the tools and pins to work on the connector, you could replace problem pins. Many of us build our own cables. If we verify the connector is Molex, you might need calipers to measure dimensions to get the correct size. You won't need expensive ones. I've seen digital calipers from \$10 to \$20.
