Nozzle is fixed in vice for heating op and melting the clogged PLA. grip only a small corner of the nozzle, the vice is a very good heat sink. Connect the heating element and the thermistor to the electronics and heat the nozzle with printrun.

The heated PLA expands and comes out the top instead of flowing through the nozzle. This is a clue, that the nozzle is clogged. We cleaned the melting chamber and the nozzle with a piece of 0,3 mm wire.

Cleaned-out nozzle, threading is sealed with PTFE tape to prevent leaking of molten material.

When attaching the extruder assembly to the X-carriage make sure that the winged nut is parallel to the edge when tightened. If not, unscrew it and retry with a different starting position.

When attaching the fan assembly to the X-axis carriage just tighten the screws lightly or this will happen.
