Constant trouble printing

i have only had my printer for about 2 months now and its already giving me issues. My prints are constantly failing. The nozzle keeps getting clogged, i have got the "WATCHDOG reset" error message 4 times. Also the fan makes a terrible noise when its printing, its been like that since i have had it. Any ideas what the printer or myself is doing wrong ?? Thanks.

You need to tell us more than "It doesn't work."

Pictures of a failed print, of your first layer calibration square and of your nozzle assembly would help us diagnose.

If you have strange noises then video with audio will help us see what's going on.

Which filament(s) are you printing?

Is your printer a kit build or a factory assembled model?

Have you ever made a successful print?

Is there any consistent failure mode?

Cheerio,

In which case I'd get on the chat with Prusa support (go to prusa3d.com, log into your account, then click on the Chat button), 24x7. If this is a warranty issue, this way you have a record with them and can expect to get replacement parts.
