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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
