I recently purchased a Da Vinci mini w+… What a nightmare but that’s another post.

So my filament broke in between the spool and the feeder tube… Ok no sweat! Just unload filament and reload… Right? Nope!
For some reason it will not unload. When I press the unload button it claims that the extruder is heating up, presumably to evacuate what remains in the tube (about 14in.) Unfortunately it is not heating up.

So I’m stuck with a long bit of filament jutting out the top and it will not come out.

I’m supressing my caveman tendencies but I’m losing strength… Lol help.

Can I manually open the extruder and release the filament?
