Thanks! As it turns out, this is not as difficult as I once thought. I let the hotend heat up in order to unscrew the nozzle (the plastic must have made some sort of seal), unscrew the nozzle, then unscrew the heatsink from the heater, and then finally unscrew what is inside the heatsink. Basically a metal tube with 2 threads on either side. I took a drill bit and cleared out the plastic and bam! it works again. Just be sure when working in pronterface that you spam M106 to keep the fan on (for some reason on my pronterface, when you start the print it turns the fan off).
After doing some printing, I have run into a problem. There is a blockage in my hotend for some reason, and the plastic will not feed through anymore. Is there a known method to remove the blockage? Alternatively, How can I get another "Complete Hotend w/0.4mm Nozzle, 100K Thermistor and Cooling Fan Assembly"?
