Got two problems with the printer right now.
the filament feed is very unreliable. it frequently tears the filament apart such that it will no longer feed.
this later caused a clog that I took apart the volcano hot end to fix. after reassembly i noticed that the end temp was -14C this was easily fixed by adjusting a screw I over torqued. but now when heating if the heat goes above ~50C it will shut down and restart the boot process repeatedly until the hot end cools down.

If anyone can tell me anything to resolve my issues I'd be glad to hear it.
