Z Probe - I have bad connectors

Hey Everyone!

I have had a couple of issues with my machine and you guys have been a great help. I have figured out my homing issues but I still am having issues with my z probe.

The connector or plug are not working and I am not sure what to do. I have called inventables twice and we always seem to miss each other. I am hoping someone has a suggestion on how to fix.

I can get it to work if i wiggle the connector once it is seated. But then about one in five it will lose connection and bag into the plate for the probe. I believe this is just a bad connection. Not sure if it is the hard wired side or the probe connector its self.

I guess my question is can I just hard wire the probe in to avoid trying to get the cable replacement or the probe replaced.

I am to a point that I will just pay and order the replacements but I just am out of ideas.

Thank you for any help you can give.

By the way I LOVE MY MACHINE!!!

i replace my plug on the carriage with a 1/4" switchcraft jack, then built a new male plug from a solder-on guitar cable end. no more problems, and $4 expense
