    Ok.... so I followed the support guide and I took apart the drive gear and cleaned it. I aligned it properly because it previously was loose. However when I put it back together this happens....



    I tried the tweezers but I didn't feel anything down there. Whenever the filament goes, it just hits a brick wall and doesn't go into the extruder. Prior to this, I did have filament in and it came out normal.

    Please help :)

    ps--- The picture below is where the filament seems to stop and feels like a jam/brick wall

    I did it! I did it! I fixed it myself!

    I unscrewed the screw that holds the hot end in place and was finally able to pull out the jam!
