 Dear Wei Feng

It shouldn't be a problem to get the connector back in to the heated
line as long as:
1. The interior tefflon tube of the heated-line fits well the interior
of the connector (make sure it 's clean inside because if it got cold
the wax solidifies and stucks inside):
2. The exterior small tube fits perfectely both connector and heated
The real problems arise if you take the connector out from the
print-head without being careful not damaging the interior thread,
because then you'll never get it back there. So be careful when you
reconnect the new heated line.

Concerning the other questions, MM6PRO works well if you keep it running
job after job. We had some trouble over here, because we stopped the
machine over Christmas. For some kind of reason the machine is a
"workaholic" - keep it running!
