For the past month or two my Taz 5 has been jamming half way through prints. I kept cranking up the temperatures, from 205 to 230, but eventually that stopped working. I thought it was due to the cooling fan getting old, so I added the split duct to the cooling fan in increase cooling. This helped the problem, though print fails still happened whereas they almost never did before.
Now, I replaced the cooling fan with a 40mm fan and I’m still having problems. It seems to be jamming after a couple of layers, barely extruding material. Sometimes it recovers, though sometimes it doesn’t. It may also happen more often when there’s shorter layer times or more retraction.
Could my thermistor or nozzle need to replaced?
This print was done at a nozzle temperature of 228C. I haven’t been able to figure out how to export settings from Cura 2.6. Thanks for any help!
