Time needed: Approximately five minutes
Maintenance frequency: Weekly
Dust may accumulate on, near, or inside of the printer. Dust can build up on fans and vent holes. High levels of dust accumulation can cause the printer to overheat.
Caution: To protect the internal hardware, the printer automatically shuts down if it reaches the maximum internal temperature of 49° C (120° F).
- Look around the vent holes on the left and right sides of the printer’s casing for signs of buildup.
- Listen to the fan for inconsistency, stress, or obstructions when the printer is powered on.
- To remove dust, power down the printer, disconnect the power cable and wipe the vents and fan with a microfiber cloth.
- After the printer has been cleaned, look down through the safety glass under the material tray to make sure that there isn’t any dust or debris on the lens.
