Tools and Materials You Will Need
- Phillips Screw Driver

Changing the Airlock Seals
If you use your machine daily, you can expect to replace the seals every 6 months.
- Remove the hopper and front safety cover.
- Slide the airlock gate to it’s open position.
- Remove the augers to access the airlock seals.
- Remove all of the seals.
- When replacing the seals, place a bead of silicone between the seal and seal plate.
- Tuck the end tabs of the seals into the next seal.
Lubricating and Grease
Once a month, you should inspect your sprockets and chain, blow out the dust and grease the bearings and lubricate the chain.
The blue filters are washable filters. You can purchase these from us or just get them from a local hardware store. They are 1″ thick.
There are no tools needed to remove or place these filters. Just pull them out, shake them off and replace. If you blow cellulose, you should do this daily. Cellulose: Shake out these filters at the end of the day.
