Print Head smoking

  • I have had my Robo 3d since December of 2016, and this is the first time I have had a problem. I had to clean out my print head, and now that everything is back together, when I try to run PLA through, the head puts out smoke and sputters out plastic. I had disconnected all the wires, but got everything back together correctly, or so I thought. Any help would be apprecated.

    A hot end may smoke after servicing/ cleaning when using any cleaning fluid, grease, sweat from fingers or excess residue. I do not think that it is any cause for concern. Continue to feed filament out of the hot end and if the problem persists, open up a support ticket.
