Smoke coming out the front on my glowforge pro

Does anyone know why smoke is coming out the front through the pass thru?

Either your exhaust fan is turned off or not functioning (that can be done via the glowforge app) or your exhaust is plugged. Do you have an external filter? If it is turned off or plugged that can also cause this.


Could also be the fan all gunked up and in desperate need of cleaning. :sponge:


Thank you!

hi @adam.french75

When your Glowforge is properly set up, you may have some harmless odor during printing which will rapidly dissipate. You may also smell something when you open the Glowforge lid after a print is complete. This is not harmful.

However, if you detect a strong, sharp smell that also causes eyes, nose, or throat irritation, or if there is visible smoke escaping while the lid is closed, shut off your Glowforge unit immediately. Smoke and fumes could be entering the room in excessive concentrations.

We’ve created a troubleshooting guide with illustrations. You can see it here:
