Black flex PLA filament stuck in feeder

Recommended Posts

Posted · Black flex PLA filament stuck in feeder

Hi there

I tried to load the black flex PLA from Ultimaker and it would not pull through the feeder into the tube. After reversing it and trying again it became clear that a piece was stuck in the feeder. You can see it but I cannot get it out. Any ideas which screws to remove to get it out?

Probably all of them

Pay attention that the screws hold the feeder motor. to prevent it from falling down you can put something in the hole where the cables goes. or you ll need to remove the motor cover (2 screws)
