Hello,
Unfortunately this has happened to me as well after about 2 months of use. Same connector for the hotbed.

Can anyone tell me where to find a replacement? Maybe a part number I could cross reference or something. I'd prefer something a bit better quality if possible. Ideally I need both sides since the pcb-side has a little damage as well.

Thanks!

Yes, I can find these locally but all are only rated to 10 Amps. I can not find any connectors with the 5 mm pin spacing that are rated above 10 amps. I believe the original ones were only rated for 10 amps and used in this 15 amp circuit and the reason we are seeing thesse burning.

Thanks,
Was hoping to find something local in the US but I will give them a try.

Hi, the same thing to me, but today the damaged was on the main DC power plug, I plan to solder the cables directly to the PCB and see if they don't get hot as soon as I turn the bed on.
