Is the filament squished flat? If so the feeder stepper is too hot. How hot is the air in your room? 20C? 30C? 35C?

Consider removing the left rear servo cover - only 2 screws - very simple. Then put a fan in front of your printer blowing towards the feeder stepper and try printing something with lots of retractions to test.

PLA gets soft around 50 or 60C and the stepper can easily get up to 80C.
