I have checked the Marlin firmware of my printer. It uses M125 as command to send a pause to the printer in case that the menu "Print Pause " is selected. Other printers are using M226. You should try to find the layer which should be printed after the pause (search for ";LAYER:layernumber" in the gcode file) and enter M125 or M226 as previous command. Sometimes it is helpful to move the printhead in a higher position to get space to handle the nut and then move the printhead back.
