Filament not pulled in

Post by bulke »

Hello,
filament gets pulled only half of a centimeter and then motor continues to work but the filament stops to be pulled in. I tried to clean the nozzle with guitar string but it didn't help. I think the problem occurs in upper part, below the motor maybe. I also played with tension-bolt (screw) on the top but no luck.

Any hints?

Update: I removed a cooler and saw that there is filament stucked between the motor and hot end. Removed that and now trying to remove filament from hot end.

Update: dissembled a hot end, removed filament from the body, reassembled, printing.

Cheers
