just a thought: did you check if your extruder fan is working ?

also, based on what i can remember from when i unscrewed my extruder: there is no place for the plastic to go to like on your drawing. can you check that the top extruder part can screw completely into the bottom ?

:D Resolve by changing a voltage to fans to 12v & adding ribs with milling cutter to top part of the Hot End.
