Leaking Olsson extruder on top of block

Posted · Leaking Olsson extruder on top of block

I've printed with this Ultimaker 2+ for about a week and I have oozing filament coming from the top of the block and it's slowly burning and leaking down to the nozzle and then into my prints. Using PLA and PETG clear. This is right out of the box. How do I tighten this top connection? I'm positive it's leaking from the top and not the nozzle.

    Hi,

    Is it a new printer or used? Maybe the olsson block has a problem or the steel coupler needs to be more tightened?

    If the printer is new it should fall into warranty (assuming you have it for 1 week)

        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.
