S5 Material Station won't empty.

Posted · S5 Material Station won't empty.

Got some material loaded in Station E.   It's through the feed motor but stopped about 5" short of the hot section.  Indicator light is blue.  When I try to unload it I get a message that the spool is empty..  but it's not.

SO what's the recovery procedure from this?  How do I get the filament out?

    Nevermind, I was able to pull the filament out by powering down the machine, releasing the tension on the feeder, and just pulling it out.   Brutal but effective 😁
