New unit won't auto feed filament unless I push "up" on the feeder lever

Hi @KarenB, perhaps it would help if you specify what type of 3D printer it is. I see you have labeled it as UM2, but I am pretty sure that is not an Ultimaker 2.. 

 

Thanks,

    I removed the extruder. I have a rather large clog. Any tips? I can't push it through.  

    I'm going to heat the tip up and let it sit for a moment. Any ideas past this, will be great. I know about the atomic pull, but have to get nozzle hot enough to loosen clog.

    Problem fixed. Heated nozzle at 235 for several min. then using a pot holder I removed the nozzle and ran a guitar string through the tip of the nozzle and pushed clog back wards. Was able to remove the clog and reinstall the nozzle with no issues.

    Blockage removed. This problem fixed. Only have 1 to 2 more. How is your hair not gray? These printers are frustrating to say the least.

    Thanks for your help.

    I have no experience with Monoprice, only Ultimaker. I don't know if that is the key to not having grey hair yet, or maybe it is just genes. Happy to hear you got it fixed though!
