Changing Out the Carbon Filter

You should change the carbon filter once per year, or if printer fumes become excessive. To change the carbon filter:

  1. On the back of the machine, unlock the two latches on the top door to access the carbon-filter bracket.
  1. Remove the four thumb screws that secure the carbon-filter bracket in place.
  1. Once you have removed the four screws, there is nothing securing the carbon filter in place. When you remove the white bracket, the filter will drop out. Discard the filter according to all government regulations.
  2. Place your new carbon filter in the bracket, as shown. There is not a specific airflow direction; so X/Y orientation is all that matters.
  1. Insert the bracket with the new filter into the machine as shown. Take care to move the wires in the upper right corner (1) out of the way while inserting the filter.
  1. Line up the four holes of the bracket with the four holes on the Printer. Reinstall the four thumb screws to secure the bracket in place. To line up the bracket easier, it is helpful to install thumb screws on opposite corners first, as in the image at the right.
  1. Close the top door and lock the latches by pushing on the levers.
