attempting nozzle removal - barrel spins

Post by gwendyl » Mon Jul 30, 2018 3:13 pm

Hi and thanks in advance!

I am trying to remove the nozzle to clean out a clog (I use ABS plastic). I have removed the hot end. However, when I attempt to unscrew the nozzle, the nozzle and barrel spin together inside of the hot end and I make no progress. Because the barrel is so round and smooth, I haven't found anything to hold it still so that I can unscrew the nozzle.

Advice?

Thanks

I am not positive but you may need a new hot end...
