New E3 V2 - filament will not stick to glass bed

  • Hi,
    I have had my printer a month or so and suddenly it seems like the glass bed has been teflon coated. I have tried cleaning with alcohol, acetone, HOT soapy water. The last print was perfect. Now just balls up on the nozzle and under the silicone heater block. I have disassembled the hot end and been soaking it in acetone for two days. Still unable to remove the nozzle.

    I have not tried hair spray or glue stick. I have tried several different filaments. All PLA or PLA+ and have printed very well in the past. Losing my mind over this.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • Heat the hotend over a cable and remove the tip, once you have that done. Push a piece of tube thru while the tip is off and it will help get the junk out. Replace tip once clean or just put a new tip on. Make sure the tip butts up against the throat so there is no gap and you should be good to go.
