nozzle broker. Heatbreak blocked inside heat block

nozzle broker. Heatbreak blocked inside heat block  

New Member

Hi all,

I broke my nozzle in my heat block. I wanted to unmount my heat block to change it but my heatbreak is clogged inside.

Any advice would help.

Any advice to put out the piece of nozzle would be much appreciated also.

A common reason for the nozzle breaking during disassembly is that it forgot to heat the nozzle to 280 degrees.
Prusa Help has lots of information on how to do it.

Bear MK3 with Bondtech extruder...

@rhdreambox thanks. I already see this one. But my case is that the heat break is in the heat block not the heatsink.

I read that I will not be able to unblock it because I need first to loose the nozzle. But unfortunately now that it is broken I can't.

I'm going to try with an extractor while heating at 285°.

PS : I broke it because I'm stupid enough to force wrong way anti-clockwize.... lesson learned: never play with your printer late at night...
