    Hi All,

    I don't succeed in having all the parts of the E3D extruder tightened up.
    With the heat, they seem to release.
    The result is that after some minutes of printing the PLA gets out burnt between the parts (see attached picture with yellow arrows).

    Thanks for any advice!

    Do you follow the tightening procedures found in the Documentation? Unless these procedures are followed the hotend will leak
    exactly as your picture shows. At the very top of this forum are the black boxes and one of them say documentation. Read the
    one for the kind of hotend that you have and follow the tightening procedure exactly as it says and that should solve your
    problems. Happy Printing!
