It managed to extrude its extruder by pushing it out the bottom when it gave up extruding the plastic.

I think it needs a thorough clean out. Can I have some help and so I can write it up on the wiki

(The other UP printer doesn't come on when you plug it in. What's wrong with that one?)

I've reseated the heater block and nozzle into the extruder head.

Cleaning should mean removing the nozzle (unscrewing it from the heater block) and soaking in acetone overnight.
