[title] Heating the Hotend
[* green] Before powering up the Hotend make sure that the PTFE tubing is pushed all the way down the Hotend, it should go into the Hotend by 6CM. Double check, as running filament through the hotend with the PTFE tube not all the way down will clog the Hotend.
- [* green] connect the other end of the tubing to your extruder.
+ [* green] Connect the other end of the tubing to your extruder. The brass coupling that's included should be removed.
[* icon_reminder] If your hotend does get clogged you will have to disassemble it to remove the clogged plastic from the hotend throat.
[* blue] Make sure that the 30mm fan is spinning too, this fan should always be one, powering your hotend without this fan will cause damage.

[* red] Set the hotend to 200 degrees and press set to begin heating.
[* icon_note] Wait for the hotend to heat.
