    Anet E12 Wonky Prints

    I've had this printer for a while and it just started doing some really weird things. Randomly through a print it will draw a line of plastic all the way to one edge of the print area and back, sometimes several times through a print and not always the same direction, so it will have these 'hairs' sticking out of a print. I was ignoring that because although strange, i just snipped off the hairs and it was fine. But it's added something on that makes it unusable. Now, in addition to the hairs, it has started to stop in the middle of a print and retract for a solid 10 seconds but it doesn't really have the strength to yank the filament out of the extruder so it just skips, then stay in the same place and feed for 10 seconds, resulting in a huge glob of plastic on the piece I'm trying to print.

    It's not a corrupted g file, since it happened on several different recent parts, and happens regardless of adding supports or other computer generated things that can go crazy.

    Am I missing something obvious?

    Thanks in advance..
