Creality k1- max

I removed the extruder and changed the nozzle
Tried to extrude but clicking sound and no extrusion
I tried to do it without the extruder by manually pushing the filament through and it wouldn’t go
Any ideas would be appreciated

Hello @Gstebbins69
Welcome to the Creality Forum Creality

I hope we can help you… :+1:

Was the nozzle you replace clogged or worn out.
Make sure the replacement nozzle is the same size.

The clicking noise is the extruder gears skipping over the filament and not able to push it through.
It sounds like you might have a piece of filament stuck in the nozzle or the heat break.

Take the extruder back off and also the nozzle according to the Creality instructions and push a heated tool down through the heat break to make sure it’s not blocked…

I used the tool that came with it and it went right through
I tried it with filament with no luck
Heated to 240
Without a nozzle

Did it work ok before you changed the nozzle…?

No
Stopped in the middle of a print
Just changed the hot end out
Now I can manually get filament through
But won’t extrude

Ensure that you have flicked the filament clamp lever to the locked position otherwise the gears wont properly grip the filament.

This is the Locked position…
