When I first got the Pancakebot and was experimenting with air pressure and batter thickness, batter got backed up into the valves (common theme here I see). I cleaned out the hose, but didn't realize it had gotten all the way in. I cleaned out the micro valves and hoses like the videos show. However, I can't print on lower than a 10 pressure setting. I can hear the unit pushing out air but it is too soft. Also, there is no longer any suction and the batter leaks when not printing making a big mess each time. Does the air pump need replacing? Air pump and micro valves?
