Overworked printer(?)

I have been working on the Star Wars chess set for a gift, so my Monoprice has been working pretty hard this week. I finished printing Leia and started the rook with tree supports when it suddenly stopped printing. When I finally got it to print by cleaning my SD card and restarted it, but now it can print the raft right. It gets stringy and peels up and pushes itself back down.

Anyone know whats happening?

    Do you mean 'it can not' ?
    What kind of bed do you use ? Glass or Pei ?
    When using a glass printing bed using a PVA glue stick can help. I personally print on an aluminium PEI plate which I clean using nail remover (aceton).

    Images (photos) may help determining the issue
