Thank you. I was able to remove the filament and it was heavily gouged.
What I found was that after reinsertion i still get no material through the hot end.
I se there is blue (the color PLA I am using) deposits on the end of the bowdon tube. Do i have a jam? How do I clear it in the easiest manner?
Go through the change material routine, but when it's trying to extrude, just grab the filament below the extruder and pull it out.
You have probably just gouged a piece out of the filament: cut that off, and reinsert it. Check also that the knurled sleeve that pushes the filament is still screwed tightly onto the motor shaft; it's possible that it has come loose, so that the motor turns, but the sleeve stays in place, and doesn't turn to drive the filament. If it's loose, you'll need to tighten it back onto the motor shaft. This may require you to remove the extruder - which in turn requires you to remove the motor cover in that corner of the printer, since the motor will fall off when the extruder is unscrewed.
