Even when I ...

Cleaning the hot tip

I had a problem with the extruder not despensing plastic. Ieaw a thread on line where it described the filament curling back up towards the hot tip as an indicator of a dirty tip or partially clogged tip. That is what was happening to my tip.

Re: unable to level part on print bed
