Hotend Leaking PLA

Mar 07, 2019 6:44 am


My new E3D v6 lite 12V Bowden is leaking PLA when I print, I dont know where is flowing from but it is there, on the heatblock.

What can I do?

Thank you

you probably didn't assemble the extruder correctly resulting in a gap beteen the bottom of the heatsink/heatbreak and the top of the brass nozzle

have a look at this guide!
