    I'll inform the fire department! Maybe they'll give me a free calendar for alerting them to a fire hazard!

    Depends on the quality. My tube melted because I was printing petg (250°C) and it was a cheap nozzle. Got better tubing and haven't had an issue since.

    Regardless, most likely cause is a partial clog. Or an incorrect nozzle size setting in the software could do it too.

    PFTE should be able to survive into the 300°C range before reaching it's transition temperature. You might need to double check your supplier is giving you what you paid for.

    I had the same thing happen with my davinci jr. I dug up a tiny resistor and shoved a lead up the nozzle a few times and wiggled it around. Pretty much fixed the problem.

    Not sure how your printer works, but the davinci jr has a few mm airgap in the extruder chassis between the bowden feed line and the heating element/nozzle (also a filament detection switch lives there, but its beside the point), so if your printer has a similar setup and is melting your tube across an air gap you might be pushing your luck with your temperature.
