Constant jamming

Recommended Posts

So recently I have been having problems with jamming, and it actually got to a point where it was so bad, that I couldn't fix it easily.

I took apart the entire hotend, did an atomic pull while holding the heater block with some pliers, and cleaned the nozzle with acetone. Now that it was clean again, I reassembled it, and it still hardly comes out, and jams.

The temperature of the nozzle is not the issue, but when the filament is pushed into the nozzle it doesn't want to come out.

One thing that I have noticed from when I was cleaning it, is that when filament is pushed into the nozzle, rather than actually extruding, it just melts and goes back onto itself. Even when the nozzle is completely clear, the filament would rather build up inside the nozzle and up into the metal piece under the isolator.

Does anyone know why this happens, the filament is melting perfectly at the recommended temperature of 210C but doesn't extrude out of a Clean nozzle. I've cleaned it so many times I just don't know what to do.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
