Cross threaded hotend

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cross threaded hotend

Anyone have this problem? I disassembled my hotend after several failed attempts of cleaning it with the atomic method. PLA was stuck in the threads of the hotend and the coupler that attaches to it. Once I cleaned the plastic out, I tried to reassemble the head and it started cross threading... I stopped and submitted a support ticket, but also figured I would post here for suggestions. Should I retap the head and coupler or wait to see what tech support says to do?
