Clean only the plastic media path surfaces, and not the internal cutter blades or cutter mechanism. The cutter blade mechanism does NOT require maintenance cleaning. DO NOT clean the blade. This blade has a special coating to resist adhesives and wear which may be damaged if cleaned.
There are no operator serviceable parts in the cutter unit. Never remove the cutter cover (bezel), or attempt to insert objects or fingers into the cutter mechanism.
Using un-approved tools, cotton swabs, solvents (including alcohol), etc. all may damage or shorten the cutter’s usable life or cause the cutter to jam.
Use a clean swab or lint-free cloth lightly-moistened with 99% isopropyl alcohol to wipe the ridges and the plastic surfaces of the media entry on the inside and the exit slot on the outside of the cutter. Clean inside the areas outlined in orange in the figure shown.
Repeat as necessary to remove any adhesive or contaminate residue and allow to dry.
