clogged nozzle, cant remove  

New Member

So i had an issue with a clogged nozzle, which ive fixed before by heating it and cleaning it out with a needle. Unfortunately the needle broke off inside this time so now its really jammed. I tried to remove the nozzle but it is super stuck. heated the nozzle to 260 and still wont budge. help please!

Read up on doing cold pulls. With a bit of luck, you'll be able to pull the broken need out through the top.

Be careful removing the nozzle, and be sure to properly brace the heater block. It's easy to snap the heatbreak neck. Read up on the full nozzle replacement procedure from E3D. Tightening everything down at 285C is essential.
