Extruder Screw Won't Push Out

Extruder Screw Won't Push Out
Vol. 27 #2, November 2000

When an extruder screw won’t push out due to an interference (foreign object) in the barrel, reverse the direction of the extruder motor/screw rotation. This will normally break the screw loose and allow the pusher to push it out.
