Extruder Clicking - Drive Gears Binding - 2016 Simple

User Comment: I tried to load and unload the filament but with no success. It seems something about the mechanism that is supposed to pull the filament is broken.

*See a video here.

 

PB Response: In my experience, this is caused by the screw that holds extruder arm being too tight. Use your 2.5mm hex wrench to loosen the screw just slightly. I think you will find that the drive gears will spin more freely.

Hope that is helpful,
