Hotend stuck in one position

  • Hot end stuck I one position and making clicking sound. What should I do?

  • Turn it off and check for any obstruction then maybe start with one of the bigger test prints and watch it for something getting stuck. Also make sure your belts are tight but not too tight

    Hey, @Jeanlee2!

    What machine do you have and what material were you printing when the hotend got stuck in the same position?

    @mpirringer is correct in checking your machine for any foreign obstacles that may be on your bed which would cause the head to get stuck.
    If everything on your bed looks free and clear and does not have material encasing the hotend to hold it in one place then if you could, send us a video or a photo to and we would be happy to assist!
