ABS extruding in Curls

I had a print fail half way through the build. It turns out the printer head got clogged, which wasn't that big of a deal to fix. This has happened every now and then. The current problem is that the ABS material that I am printing with is only extruding in curls now. Is there a problem with the hea...

Did you ever resolve this issue? I'm running into curly prints on my Up mini 2 right now as well.
