Lubricating The Bearing Rods

After every 100 hours of operation, the bearing rods should be lubricated.

Caution: Do not spray lubricant directly on the bearing rods. Applying too much lubricant can leave residue throughout the printer. The bearings only require a thin layer of grease to operate properly.

  1. Power off and disconnect the printer from utility power.
  2. Apply a small amount of bearing rod grease (Part Number: 403194-00) to a clean, lint-free cloth.
  3. Using the cloth, wipe the six (6) bearing rods (1-6).

NOTE: Ensure each bearing rod has been fully treated with a thin layer of bearing rod grease.

  1. Manually move the print jet carriage (A - See Above) front-to-back and left-to-right.

NOTE: The print jet carriage should glide smoothly.
