how to unplug a clogged print head.

"Insert the Filament". How will you know when you did it correctly? How far is far enough? Is there a "too far"? When I turn the gear, I can't get it to "bite" and pull down the filament. Some excessive detail on "insert the filament" would be helpful here. Please add for the next guy!!!

When loading filament, I cut the end of the filament on a diaganel so it doesn't catch on some edge down in the extruder. With a simple cross cut I was always catching on something below the guide tube.
