Out of box -- won't load filament

Post by lcarstetter » Wed Dec 13, 2017 5:42 pm

Literally unboxed the printer this morning and followed set up instructions. I have initialized the machine and selected extrude for the brand new roll of filament that came with the printer. The extruder begins to feed the filament, but then stops and starts making a loud clicking noise. Previous 3d printers I have worked with have done this when the extruder head is jammed, but this is brand new! Any insight on what might be going on would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there,

Which printer do you have?
And did you set up the filament temperature accordingly on the software?
