Changed thermistor - auto tune failing
I just changed out my hot end from one of those chinese hotends to the E3D which has a different thermistor. I tried to auto tune and it is failing, not sure if I have my settings correct.
Warning: Auto tune of heater 1 failed due to bad curve fit (G=1869.8, tc=199.7, td=4.7)
[[language]] ;*** You can use S and B parameters to define the parameters of the thermistors you are using. Standard 100k thermistor from E3d is 4388 or 4725.

any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I added the C param and it still did not function properly. Still failed.

The gain is much too high. Are you using a 12V heater cartridge with a 24V supply?
24V supply yes, not sure about the heater. Unfortunately when I was building my printer I went through a few and honestly didn't look. I have an unopened labled 24v heater here from E3D.
The heater was working before with the old thermistor.
So I used the P0.25 when auto-tuning and it passed but gave me the overheating warning.
First question I have I guess would be should I switch out the heater or is there way to check and see what type of cartridge it is?
Second, is setting the P0.25 param when auto tuning acceptable?
I changed out the heater cartridge for the 24v version. Ran auto tune again with P1 and it worked perfectly. The curve looks nice and the heat is steady while printing.
Sorry for the newbie questions, I am sure this was a beginner mistake… will pay closer attention to these details in the future.
