My printer has produced more problems than prints. All my models have come out "spongy," like there was not enough plastic coming out of the nozzle to fill in all the gaps. When I looked up the problem online, it suggested that debris was clogging the nozzle.

Some of the instructions online suggested doing "hot pulls" and "cold pulls." These maneuvers involve feeding cleaning filament into the nozzle and pulling it back out. A cold pull means you shove a strand in and let the nozzle cool before you yank it out. The idea is that the debris inside will be trapped in the liquefied plastic and come out with it. Sure enough, I cleared some crusty black particles from my printer.
