Re: Filament stops flowing in the middle of printing

The filament stopped flowing once again. This time I was watching the printing, and it lasted much longer. Because I saw it stopped flowing, I paused the printing, asked to change the filament. It was very hard to unload the filament. It seemed to be stuck. Eventually, I managed to pull it out. Then...

Re: Filament stops flowing in the middle of printing

Actually, I spoke too soon.
This is indeed a Beethefirst+. After one minute of printing, the fan started to roll. So, I guess this is still not it.

Re: Filament stops flowing in the middle of printing

I will contact customer support.

Re: Filament stops flowing in the middle of printing

Hi, The printer is brand new. This would have been the first time it would be used. There is no clogging. If I unload the filament and then load it back again, I can start printing right away, and then it stops again after about 20 minutes of printing. It is almost as if suddenly the filament dries ...

Re: Filament stops flowing in the middle of printing

Thank you for the quick reply. However, I don't think we are talking about the same printer, as the photos you showed are not familiar. I am trying to use a Beethefirst (the one that is enclosed in a plastic box). I see no oiler, not sponge or any of the accessories you mention Once I opened the upp...

Filament stops flowing in the middle of printing

I began today my first printing of a reasonably large part. I did all the calibrations before I started. However, the printing has failed twice after about 20 minutes of printing, since the filament stopped flowing, and the printing started happening in the air, as no plastic is flowing. The first f...
