I am having an issue with the fan making a grinding sound at start and end of cycle, and being very loud during operation.
The volume of and amount of grinding at the end seems to be related to the length of cut.
I have been servicing the machine as directed, as well as cleaning and maintaining the fan and duct (keeping them clear of detritus, vacuuming thoroughly both one a week).
Recently, cuts have been getting worse and the smoke level in the machine has been increasing.
What should I do?
Included is a small video showing off the exceptional volume and the grinding sound (which is brief as the job was a fast one) and showing off some of the non-cutting issues (which on long jobs has cost me whole sheets from nothing being actually cut out all the way), esp on proofgrade draftboard and proofgrade maple ply.
Cant wait for some guidance. We LOVE this machine and have so many future projects to do!
