Spring to filament feeder

  • Hello,

    Is there anyone else that has had the problem with the spring that regulates the tension of filament feeder being to soft? My printer, CR-10, has worked reasonably well for at least a year but now the latest prints it did not feed filament properly and the prints failed. I found out that if i pressed the filament through feeder it worked. Looked for a stiffer spring in my drawers but could not find any, instead i took a thick washer and put at the end of the spring and it did the trick, the filament started to feed as it should again. Previous to this action I have of course tried to clean feeder wheel and filament path but didn´t help. Can one buy stiffer spring from Creality?
    Best Regards Magnus
