Sorry, I have both thermocouples in, just have single e3d adapter. Won't use second raise3d end and it's shorter so not in the way. Both are hooked up though.

Ah,
Assuming the termalcoupler is ok, check the polarity if its wires.

If you hook the wires in backwards, it will read the temperature backwards and cause the error.

I am wondering about the PTFE tube. I actually found that here is space between the adapter and the other tube that things might get caught on. Not sure if you can flare the top of the adapter.

I was printed ePC with the new hotend. then I went to print with Polysmooth. I found the polysmooth needed the hotend cleaned after using the ePC since ePC prints at a much higher temperature. residue from the ePC was damaging the polysmooth as it extruded. I think i sorta clogged the hotend because I didn't think about clearing the polysmooth which was not designed for the higher temperature. so I went to guitar center and ace and picked up some guitar strings. 15 gauge is .38mm. and some music wire from ace that was 55 gauge. while poking the music wire down into the hotend, I was hitting the top of the adapter. It wasn't going into the hole exactly. esun cleaning filament is pretty soft stuff, I think it was having issues getting into the hole as well. I haven't had issues with anything else yet.

Recommend going with something closer to 1.75 for poking around from extruder side of the toolhead.
iirc some wire was provided with the N2 just for this purpose.
The flairing i believe you are asking for is describe in the guide, see the section regarding PTFE tube installation. Snip "Finally flare the entrance of the PTFE tube with an awl or other suitable tool."
I have run three spools of ninja flex (85 durometer) through mine with out issues either extruding or loading. Note i use .8mm nozzle for flex and bondtech extruder.
If you haven't flared PTFE tube do so and be sure heatsink body is all the way up into tool head.
If there is still a gap between Heatsink and tool head R3D PTFE liner there are two ways to address that come to mind.
Install a longer PTFE tube in heatsink or push R3D liner down and shim to hold in place if needed.

Side note, I use scrap taluman bridge nylon for cleaning/clearing all metal nozzles via the cold pull method. ~$15 bucks a lb and will last for years if your just using for cold pulls.

without knowing what additional fans you may have and assuming v6 heaterblock i would recommend stock air diverter or 35mm axial fan shroud.v1.2
