Can't remove the nozzle off my Up Plus 2 printer

Post by Justin » Sun Jul 16, 2017 8:51 am

Hey guys I'm struggling to remove the nozzle off my extruder i've been following the instructions off the manual i.e. heating the extruder to 200+ degrees before attempting to use the provided ratchet wrench to unscrew it off with assistance from pliers to hold it in place. I'm not sure if i'm not doing something right or it's just on bizarrely tight. It only budges about 1/18 of a revolution. I've tried unscrewing it both disassembled and assembled and neither works particularly better than the other

I was wondering if anybody has faced a similar situation.

(I'm ultimately trying to soak the nozzle in acetone as theres remnant filament stuck inside and won't extrude any new filament properly)

Thanks

If you heat the hot end at least at the same temperature of your last print, it should unscrew relatively easy.
