The title says it all. I'm wondering how much it's worth. By broken, I mean that it's not cut in half, it just doesn't mine anymore.

Depends on miner. Avalon Patch1 were good aluminum housings, for re-use.

You can use the old KNC controller with new Neptune cube .

Some people like me are also buying defective miners to play or experiment with them, and sometimes repair them.
Usually, 1/5 to 1/10 of the lowest $/GH rate for new hardware.

Well, if your machine is pretty new then it should worth about half, older asic should only worth 1/10 or none..

Just like everything else - it is worth whatever someone else is willing to pay for it.

If it is something that may be fixable, it may have more value to someone who likes to tinker.

I think it depends on the miner. If only the controller board is broken, you might still get some $$ for it. If the chips itself are dead most likely next to nothing.
It really depends on what miner you got, and what is defective.
