I am looking for what thermistor is used inside the kickr v5 to measure temperature. Mine is broken and Wahoo won't give me the details. It's literally a $1 part breaking a $1000 trainer.

Recently, there seem to be quite a few cases like this, see also viewtopic.php?f=8&t=160808 and similar cases on reddit.

It would be great if anyone knows the resistance values of the thermistor.

If you ever opened your trainer to service the bearings or clean the speed sensor, you could help us out by measuring the resistance values with a multimeter (you might anyways want to do so because if your thermistor fails, you'll be in the same situation).

For some reason the thurbo trainer doc only responded once but never got around to finding out the thermistor. I think he's too busy with a backlog of trainers waiting to be doctored!
