Try cleaning the glue stick slot out with acetone (nail polish remover) and a paper towel, or cue tips if you have to get into a small area. that should help to break down any dried glue that may be blocking a new stick from feeding in, or may be blocking the heating element

Hello,

There is a glue build up inside. Most likely in the feeding mechanism, try to heat it up, the unplug, and use like a paper rolled up to try to remove some of the glue. :)

I can' get the glue stick out of the glue gun


No need for concern. Just leave it there and then the next time you use it push a new one in as needed.
I haven't met a glue gun yet where you can take out the last remnants of glue stick.
If you prefer to remove it try this:
take a paper clip and straighten it (any thin,metal object will work) Heat the glue gun,unplug it,and then heat the end of the paper clip with a lighter/candle.
Insert it into the end that you load from,sticking it into the glue stick. Wait a short time and then pull the paper clip out. The glue stick should come out with it.
I find it easier to leave the glue stick in as I said,but it's your choice.
