    Then you may have a jam, filament stuck before the heat break or a clog, filament stuck in the nozzle.

    You an do it a few ways. Remove the nozzle while hot, be careful and feed filament to see if the hole is clear then use a torch to melt the filament out of the nozzle. Then reinstall season and add an oiler if pla or find a low e guitar string and while hot stick it through the hole to clear a jam

    If you are using a torch, just the brass nozzle... not the entire hotend :)

    Small metrics I have had good luck at local hardware stores (Ace hardware for example). They keep them hidden so I had to ask :)

    I don't know what type of Filament you use. But I use HATCHBOX ABS 3D Printer Filament.

    Few years before, I had the same questions that you have today. But fortunately I found a site that help me a lot. If you also like to get help from that site, I can help you.
