Filament Stuck In S3 Print Core


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament Stuck In S3 Print Core

I kicked off a print over the weekend, and came back to print stopped because the filament wasn't feeding. I assume the nozzle is clogged, but the problem is I can't get the filament out of the core. I saw a similar problem where it was suggested heating the core up to 280 to soften the filament. Tried that, heating it up for 30 minutes, but still couldn't work the filament out. Any other ideas on getting the filament removed would be very appreciated!

    You could try to heat up the core, but open the front door of the head that the fan is not cooling anymore the heat break. But be careful otherwise you mess up the upper part of the core with filament and it. would be hard to get it out.


    Maybe a better solution is to cut the filament from outside with a cutter or something like that. I had the same problem some months ago and I was able to cut the filament exactly above the print core. 


    If nothing helps, you can only open the print head itself.
