PLA nozzle temp increasing

Recommended Posts

Posted · PLA nozzle temp increasing


I've been using my ultiimaker 2 for about 9 months.

I've noticed the functionalnozzle temperature for PLA has been increasing in the last 2-3 months. While I used 210 F initially, I've been forced to increase the nozzle temp to up to 240 F with the same spool to make it work. If I don't increase the nozzle temp, the material won't flow.

Anyone knows why is this happening?

Most probably it's the teflon. You should replace it.


Do you mean the PTFE isolator couple?
