Filament stuck

Good morning.  There should be an attached photo that shows my current predicament.  I have some filament that broke off and was stuck between the end of the extruder (I assume) and up to the top of the heat block.  I was eventually able to heat the printer to 180-200 degrees and with tweezers pull out what was hard to reach.  However, once I pulled that 2-3" piece out, it was stuck.  So, I can't get 'something' out.  Not sure what other steps I should take.  What else can I take apart?  I did watch a video from Polar3D.  I

Hi Bill!

We'll get you up and running! Was the video you watched this one?

If so, what's the current status of the printer?

Best Regards,


Did you ever resolve this? We had a clog where we had to torch a paperclip to be able to breakthrough the clog

Justin - 

Yes, we did.  It seems like we heated that heat up to like 200+ degrees - far more than the typical heat - maybe even higher.  Then we used the small hex wrench end and shoved through it.  The heat was the key - we simply were going the traditional heat unaware that it could go so much higher - good luck!

Thanks Bill for the tip!
