Cleaning the LabelManager 280 Print Head

Dymo actually provide you with a special cleaning tool to make this task simple. We can't emphasize enough how important it is to keep the print head clean if you want your LM280 to print clean and crisp labels everytime. This task is so simple. Here's how it's done:
  1. Remove the label cassette.
  2. Remove the cleaning tool from inside the label compartment cover. See Figure 8.
  3. Gently wipe the padded side of the tool across the print head. See Figure 8.

Again, we recommend you clean the print head regularly. It only takes a few seconds and will ensure your LabelManager 280 stays in A1 condition.
