Filament stuck in the tube and I can not take of it. I took out tube from printer and tried to push with other filament; but it didn't even move a little bit. Do you have any idea? Thanks.

    Neotko's method is a little quicker if you've done it 5 times but also more dangerous - you could just melt it in there. Pouring a pot of boiling water into a pyrex or metal pan is the perfect temperature for this: 70-80C (even though boiling water is 100C it will cool very quickly when it hits the pan).

    It helps to have gloves or tongs. And a friend (4 hands).
