So I have had the printer for about a week now and it has worked well. I have been using the e-sun PLA.
Between today and yesterday I have been experiencing a lot of failures.
First, I started getting faulty prints. I would come and there would be jams. I thought it was odd considering how smoothly the printer had been running in the past.
Here is an example:
Then, I experienced a couple of jams. I have had a couple of printers and was able to clear it out easily.
However, today I came home to this:
And after that my extruder was completely clogged. I have been able to get a decent amount of the filament out but its been hard.
It seems like there is a pretty well melted piece in there and there is no way for me to get it out.
Here is a pic (sorry for the bad quality but its hard to get in there):
I am kind of blown away considering how smoothly the printer had been running until yesterday and today. Can anyone tell me how I could potentially clear that? it looks beyond jammed in there. Kind of bummed also, new printer and seems a bit early to be having such a nasty problem :-/ anything helps.
