Unloading process doesn't work

Recommended Posts

Posted · Unloading process doesn't work

Hi everyone,

I am trying to load and unload the filament. When I press unload, the gear didn't retract out all the filament. This happened to me last time and I had to do a hot/cold pulling cleaning procedure. There was some clog. I don't think it should be a problem this time, because I just did it. 

I don't know, but could this cause the nozzle to not be printing too much? The loading process extrudes out some, but when I print, it prints out little dots.


I also noticed that when I was able to unload it, there were some bumps at the end where the gear and the filament may touch at.

    As already answered in your other post, your feeder tension is not correct. Bring it to the middle position and try it again.
