Thanks for the info. never thought of that. I check and there is no retractions happening. I will have to take the hotend apart and see if there is something mechanically wrong with it. also may trend the temperatures somehow to see if the temp is dropping during the print.
I found out something interesting, but not relevant to my issue though. Even though retractions is turned off, when the print starts, after homing the 3 axis and before moving to the print stat, it preforms a retraction based on your current settings even though retraction is turned off.
