For those who prefer a video!
This is a walk through on how to replace your faulty XT60 connectors on your Ender 3 or Ender 3 Pro. Many Enders are shipped with crimped connections rather than soldered connections. Additionally, the XT60 connectors are poor quality and tend to deform, melt and can lead to fire. This is a relatively simple and inexpensive fix that can save your Ender and your home.
