[Solved] Filament not loading - gets stuck  

Filament not loading - gets stuck

After loading\unloading many spools of filament. Now, when I try to load the filament, it loads into the Extruder Drive Gear but doesn't go past that point.

I cleaned the Extruder Pulley according to the directions. But, after I reassembled it it did the same thing. 

Every time I eject the filament, it seems to have a bite mark out of it from the gears trying to feed it through.

I've tried a few adjustments to the idler screw, but that hasn't changed anything either.

Any help would be appreciated!

The short tube inside the Bowen Tube was clogged, the problem was solved by disassembling the parts a bit more.
