I got my Glowforge and compact filter this summer and have put maybe 20-30 hours using proofgrade plywood and amazon sourced plywood. Recently, it has been leaking smoke out of the front and top edges, mostly while cutting.
I have tried adjusting the knob on my compact filter, but it doesn’t seem to change the suction force that it creates much at all. When looking inside of the compact filter at the actual filter it looks dirty on the top side, but still white as clouds on the bottom. I just can’t see how I could have to already get a new filter. I have tried everything else that is listed on the Glowforge support page related to excess smoke with no success.
Has anyone with a Glowforge Compact Filter run into this sort of problem? And advice, tips, or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
