@Noodles  Check the bearing opposite the motor is rotating freely. Angus off of makers muse had an issue where the pressure bearing wasn't rotating at all.......

Does this entail a full tear down of the print head? I wanted to avoid that......shucks.

no, the bearing on the printhead door itsself, should be held in by 4 little screws if you need to take it off to get it moving again.

I will look at the smooth wheel but I think it was rolling smoothly.

make sure its springing and the rod is fully into its slot, it should be able to move if you put enough force on it.

IT'S ALIVE! It definitely needs some more work, but it finally lives! Thanks guys for your help! The wheel wasn't turning AND I needed to put the cardboard back in.

@Noodles Good to hear  ;)

That's what the forum is here for. Hopefully you can get some good(ish) prints now.
