Revo Nozzle Stuck

I recently installed my Revo Six and have been printing fine for a few days. I have done several nozzle swaps with no problem. Now, when I try to remove my 0.25mm nozzle, it won't budge. I tried using pliers and it doesn't work either. I even tried heating it to 180C, which also does nothing. Is there any way I can remove my nozzle without damaging anything? I have already properly unloaded the filament. Any help would be appreciated.

I am currently trying to contact E3D, but since they are in GMT, and I live in the US, the time difference slowing down the communication.

RE: Revo Nozzle Stuck

That is understandable.  I am using a REVO and have not had this issue.  What filament?

RE: Revo Nozzle Stuck

Were you able to find a resolution to this? I just ran across the same issue (nozzle is totally stuck). Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply, I was able to contact E3D and after trying to clean the nozzle with tweezers and other methods, I just asked for a new nozzle and heater and they sent me a free replacement and a tracking link with no questions asked. I came across this issue with my new Revo heater and nozzle and I was able to remove it at printing temperatures (215C). I have not have the issue again since. Hope this helps.

RE: Revo Nozzle Stuck

I have not had the issue after 100+ hours printing on my Revo.

RE: Revo Nozzle Stuck

Thanks have a ticket open will see what they say  - Did you use a tool or something to remove when it was at printing temps?

I removed the silicone sock while cold and then used pliers (you have to squeeze very hard) to unscrew it when hot.

This started happening to me again, but I was able to resolve it by removing the sock, preheating the nozzle, and using pliers to unscrew partially. I noticed that this usually happens after printing flexibles (flexibles seem to really like sticking to my Revo nozzle) or when a blob shoves molten filament between the nozzle and HeaterCore.
