I am new to 3D printing which we all are/were at some point. I have no clue how to address the issue which likely is reason why I haven't found the solution yet. So if you see that this question has been posted elsewhere, please link it! Thanks!
I have had this issue for a while, however right now, one minute ago, it worked kind of. The text below is a description of the problem that very often occurs!
So the issue is basically the extruder. I have a Flashforge Adventurer 3. In it's software you have a "Load" and "Change" option which you change and load filament with. When I load filament it goes through the tube but it never exits the extruder. The common answer is that the nozzle is clogged. I have honestly checked this, it isn't the problem. I have cleaned it as Flashforge says and I have also been using really small metallic pins to push out all the filament. So that isn't the issue.
Sometimes the filament also gets stuck inside the tube. Or the Bowden tube I think it is called.
I did a test 10 minutes ago, it went through the tube smoothly. No filament came out at the other end however. I then changed the filament, which means I pulled it back. I then saw that a part of the filament had gotten stuck at the end of the tube. It didn't pull all the filament back, a very small bit of the filament had somehow gotten stuck?
As it doesn't extrude filament when I load the filament it has nothing with the calibration to do what I know. So my own conclusion would be that something between the tube and extruder is going crazy. And I know, that isn't a good conclusion. However I don't know how to address it as I said before.
I know that it's hard to troubleshoot a text, so I will upload a video for you guys reading this. I really just want my 3D printer working again as the company said it probably isn't anything wrong with the machine..
When the machine starts working again it prints, but not good. Here is a video of how hit prints a big "F". Link. Sometimes it stops extruding filament for a while then it starts to extrude again..
There is also an image of the print below![
The machine is printing at 195 °C! I appreciate all the help I can get, I just want my machine fully working again.
