multiple printer jams

Recommended Posts

so ive had my printer for a little over a week, printed the roll of natural PLA the printer came with perfectly fine, ordered some colorfab ultramarine blue and ive got about 6 hours of printing on it and now im getting jams, and even when i clear them and continue to print, i get maybe 10 minutes before another jam

when it jams i let it cool down, then use the move material function to back it out and then pull the bowden tube out and cut the tip off, then heat the nozzle up and push it back in until it starts extruding with the move function. then it prints fine for about 10 minutes before getting clogged again.

should i be clearing it a different way? am i not getting it entirely unclogged?
