Lulzbot TAZ6 blocked extruder

My TAZ6 extruder is partially blocked. When I follow the instructions on Lulzbot’s website, I can get a small amount of filament extruding, but it appears too fine, as though the hotend is partially blocked. When I try the cold pull, the PLA filament snaps, and there is no taper on the end, just a fractured end,

Any suggestions?

Hey Doug,

It does sound like your nozzle is blocked.

There is a couple of things you can do to fix this problem. The guide Never Have Filament Grinding Again in the section Print Nozzle has a number of different techniques to remove the contaminants from the nozzle.

If none of those solutions work hit me up again and we’ll figure it out

Kind regards,
