hi. I’ve had my glowforge less than two months and for the last two days every time I start a cut it sounds like a jet engine taking off and the machine is running extremely loudly for the whole cut. the machine has been thoroughly cleaned inside, and this morning and took off the exhaust hose and vacuumed it and vacuumed and cleaned around the output hose area. I don’t know what else I can clean and why after less than two months my machine now sounds like a jet airplane taking off. please help.
Once your exhaust fan gets past a certain point dirty it gets out of balance and this is most likely what you are hearing.
Go here for cleaning it: https://app.glowforge.com/maintenance/fan
Note, you will need to purchase the spray cleaner before you can do this.
sure hope that spray lasts more than one cleaning because if I have to do that every two months that’s a freaking expensive cleaner!!
Thanks for the answer @markevans36301, that’s right. I’m going to close this thread - if the problem reoccurs, go ahead and post a new topic.
