Has this part broke on your printer?

I came back to the overnight print and even though it was still moving, it only printed a portion of my model. 
I found out the filament was not being extruded due to the pinch roller bracket being broken. 
Just wondering if this is common? They are sending me a new part after Chinese Labor Day holiday, but I'm considering printing a replacement part just in case.

@toddr Yes, that's a common issue with the printer. Nice opportunity to upgrade your extruder to aluminium extruder or even better a dual gear extruder.
Don't know about Chinese holiday, but if they send you the same part you will probably have same problem in future.
