Posted · filament leaking around the nozzle

I am a teacher and got got the Ultimaker 2+ about a month ago and have printed 5 small projects off the SD card. As I am now trying to print there is filament that is coming out around the nozzle on all sides so that when it accumulates enough (about 5 minutes) the print is affect. What is the problem? How can I fix it?

    Hello,

    You are posting in the wrong forum, this is for the UM3 owners. :)

    About your issue. You could try to heat the nozzle up to 200°C and remove the nozzle to clean all the filament that got stuck on your olsson block. Also clean your nozzle while it's warm, but don't burn your fingers. Screw your cleaned nozzle back to the olsson block and tighten it while it's 200°C hot to make sure there is no filament blocking it.

    Good luck :)
