Posted · One brand of filament works and the other does not... Help?

Good day all,

I have been 3D printing for about 2 months now so forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I mainly print with PLA. I use the Wanhao Premium Filament on a 205C Extruder Temperature and every single print comes out perfectly. I recently bought a different brand of filament from a local online store and I have had nothing but problems with it. Half way through the print it would just stop extruding or it will leave layer splits in the print.

I contacted the local supplier and told them that I feel the quality if the filament is off and they told me that it can not be the filament, it must be my heat settings. Generally PLA prints well at 205C so I cannot see how my temperature settings are wrong. Any advise?
