I put an e3D-V6 (latest model with cartridge thermistor) in my TAZ 5 months ago but I am still having an issue with removing the filament when I want to change it. When I heat it up I can pull the filament a little bit (maybe 5-10mm) but then it stops, sometimes I can push it back in as well but I fight and fight to get it out and more often than not I end up having to disassemble it to get it out.
I have tried the suggestions I have received here of extruding right before pulling it out and of using retraction do pull it out and both together (extruding 20mm then immediately retracting) but nothing works all the time.
I am getting to where I dread changing filament in it and I know it should not be this way.
Any other suggestions?
Is there anything I should look at to see if it’s defective in some way?
It feels like the melt chamber is larger than the cooling section of something so you have a glob on the end that won’t go through the next chamber.
Thanks in advance.
