i have only had it two weeks and it was running on low yesterday

I don’t have the filter, but posts in the forum have indicated that it can fill in as little as 10 hours use depending on what you are cutting/engraving.

Certain materials fill the filter very quickly. Draftboard/mdf is one such item.

Hi @cal.robinson - When the air starts to move more slowly because the cartridge is full, a beeping sound will notify you. You may be able to turn the knob clockwise to increase the fan speed and extend the cartridge life a little more. When you detect smells during printing even when the Glowforge Air Filter dial is set to “Full”, it’s time to change the filter cartridge.

I see you’ve written us directly over email about this as well. Since we’re chatting there, I’m going to close this thread.
