little bits of fillament coming from side of extruder

Postby kduzi » Mon Nov 16, 2020 9:08 pm

as the title says - i have little bits of filament coming out of the side of my extruder during printing. as the printing goes on more and more little bits of material end up on the print surface.

the pieces are coming out from the side of the idler and from the gear. this is only happening on the left extruder.

has anyone encountered this?

i will see if i can post some pics

My next step here is to disassemble the extruder and see if i notice anything but i am hoping someone has a better idea before i dive in.

What type of printer are you refering to? E, Pro, or N?
