The airflow in the machine is directed across a lot of stuff that can’t be cleaned. It probably helps cool components, and keeps the machine more compact in its design. But this drags debris, dust, soot, and glue residue (from plywood) across all of the components and sensitive stuff. I’ve got a GF pro and have half a mind to run the exhaust out the back pass through port. Much easier and more accessible to clean the back wall than everything buried in the left side of the machine. Thoughts?
Thanks all! I’m glad you talked me out of it. I have a secondary exhaust fan, and will soon get a stronger one. - My original plan would have kept the stock fan, and added more airflow through the slot.
Question, do you clean the tube? I wipe off the top but underneath is crusty as can be but tough to get to.
