    Is there a definitive guide or process for clearing a blocked heat break. My fan failed and the cold portion heated up resulting with a molten filament in the cold area.

    Try at your own risk: As an alternative to disassembly I have in the past removed the heatbreak fan and set the head to 285. Using the heat creep to your advantage you can manually feed and clear the filament as it softens. As soon as its cleared you turn the heater off.
