so, I found out what the problems are with the printer.
1) PEEK insulator was plugged, causing filament to strip out and refuse to feed. This was fixed.
2) the acrylic case that holds the feed bearing is cracked, and isn't putting enough force against the extruder motor to properly feed my filament. This cannot be fixed by me, and I now get to order the part to replace it. The cost is 15 for the part, 11.25 to ship it.
Because of this, printing is down for 5-7 business days, until I can recieve and install the part.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
