Overview: Dust may accumulate on, near, or inside of the printer. High levels of dust accumulation can cause the printer to overheat.
Note: To protect the internal hardware, the printer automatically shuts down if it reaches the maximum internal temperature of 49° C (120° F).
- 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 then 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.
