Cleaning the Ultimaker Original+ feeder

After a lot of printing, the knurled wheel in the material feeder can accumulate small filament particles. The knurled wheel can easily be taken out and cleaned. It is recommended to check and clean the feeder once a year, or when you experience extrusion problems.

Follow the steps in the tabs below:
