Unable to print with a .40 nozzle on my MK3

Good Morning.  For some reason I'm unable to print on my MK3 with a .40 nozzle.  No matter what I try the filament doesn't extrude out of the .40 nozzle correctly (studders, prints thin or not at all)  and I have to abort the job.  I have the latest Firmware, updated the nozzle setting on the printer  as well as in the gcode, but the same problem.  I'm guessing it's some setting in Slicer?    Note, when I print with the .60 nozzle and settings it prints perfectly!  I don't get it.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Have you been able to try a second 0.4mm nozzle?

Also, check your slicer settings again.

I would try a second nozzle first, then use the stock slicing profiles.
