RE: Prusa Mini: stops extruding, starts clicking

@daryl-2

I’ve done those thing already and still no luck. Im honestly out of options at this point I’ve litterly trying everything. cleaning extruder, replacing nozzle, raising the heat break, raising temperatures, and loosening in tightening the tension and still nothing 😤. Im open to ANY advice.

Im open to ANY advice.

I'd check these 2 things:
1) Does the filament run smoothly through its path?
-loosen the extruder tension completely
-remove the nozzle
-now you should be able to move the filament relatively easily by hand through the system
-if not, find the problem
2) Does the extruder pull with reasonable force?
-set the tension according to the guide (iirc screw flush with the housing, when no filament loaded)
-remove the bowden tube on the extruder exit
-now use manuall controlls to pull some filament 
-check if it pulls with enough force
-enough = quite some more than you needed in step 1)  (to push the filament without nozzle)
-if it doesn't, then there's a problem with the extruder

 

(Especially for the second step: Find, understand and use the g-code to enable cold extrusions.)

Sorry you're having issues!  I have found Prusa chat support helpful when things get frustrating.  If you go to the e-shop, you'll see the "chat now" window.

Sounds like a jam.  I often have to do a cold pull.

The SuperPinda cleared up this problem for me.  The other thing was making sure the extruder was clean and had a good grip on the filament

I dont think thats the problem because the extruder us actually grinding the filament.
