Dan on the forum had this great suggestion to improve the heated bed thermistor. Basically, he observed that the thermistor didn't contact the aluminum heat dissipator and used heat sink compound and Kapton tape to secure it properly. Here's how to do it.

The problem can be seen clearly in the first photo. The thermistor can't take an accurate and reliable bed temperature in that position.

Use a little dab of the heat sink compound left over from assembling the E3D V6 hot end as shown in the second photo.

Carefully secure the thermistor to the Kapton heater with 4-6 strips of the 1/4" Kapton tape as shown in the third photo.
