Temp. Sensor connector

Post by loveMy850 »

My temp sensor connect is loose. Part# 6849017. Does anyone know if this connects into the other end of the connect without having to pig tail? The 2 prong on mine are so loose I have to jiggle it for my fan to run. So if anyone's having fan trouble it might be your temp. Sensor connector. Thank you.

Just loose ... Get a set of Terminal Pin Extractors. Extract the pins from the connector. Tighten the pins or replace them.
Terminal Pin Extractors unlock the pins so that one can pull then out of the connector. The hardest part is figuring out which Extractor for the many types of pins.

You can find 70 pcs Terminal Pin Extractor sets on eBay or Amazon for <$15.00 .

Here's a pretty good writeup:

These are old fashioned bullet style terminals and I don't think they require a depinning tool. The connector has a hinged piece which is held by tabs on each side. I found it really easy to remove the shell and get a box end wrench on the sensor.
