How to clean fan:

The printer ventilation is of utmost importance for the printer to function properly. Operating the printer with a soiled main fan can lead to excessive heat generation within the printer. This may affect the performance of the system and lead to malfunctions and/or damages to printer parts. Therefore, clean the main fan once a month.

The main fan is located on the underside of the printer.


  1. Twist off the fan covering.
  2. Check if the filter is dirty.
  3. If the filter is only slightly dirty, it can be cleaned e. g. by using compressed air. In case the filter is very dirty, it has to be replaced.
  4. Put the fan covering back together with the cleaned filter.
