Ultimaker3 head jam with PVA

Posted · Ultimaker3 head jam with PVA

I just bought an ultimaker3 and an extra set of heads, both AA and BB. I'm putting PVA through the second head which is a BB and it has jammed and clogged the silver part of the head with PVA. I tried the second head and the same thing happened. I took one of the heads apart and cleaned out the silver tube but I think it is the copper head that is clogging. As soon as I tried it again the head was already clogged. I'm using the default settings and made sure Head 2 was PVA. How can the head clog so quickly? Is this a common problem?

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
