PLA Clogged in Extruder

Recently the PLA was clogged in the extruder. It started with clicking sound and rather than fixing it immediately, I thought I would wait. It’s believed it was caused by changing the PLA from HatchBox to eSUN. eSUN used a higher temperature and when it was set to 225 the clicking stopped. Later replaced with HatchBox, but didn’t cold pull to insure that all the PLA was removed. Once HatchBox was loaded, clicking came back and print job went thru the night clicking. In morning, the print job failed and I could not remove PLA. It required, removing Extruder and the PLA plug came out easy. The picture shows a slight swelling at the end.
