UP+ heater failure

A few weeks ago my printers platten heater failed to heat.
As you can see from the picture below the connection to the platen and heater was poorly crimped, creating a cold joint, high resistance and finally it opened with the heat.
I recently got a new part from the manufacturer under warranty, replaced it and my printer is now up and running just fine.
Symptoms:
-Prints warping
-Platen not heating but the printer thinks it is. Temp on printer software never changes but no error from printer.
