Image 1/3: when the machine is getting  a little older the black rubber seal dacay over time... ( i am not sure this phrase is correct? ) . A new one costs 98 euro here in Belgium ...rediculous... , so be very carefull with older machines ( + 5 years..) Image 2/3: after cleaning the machine on the back ( 3 times over 5 years) the machine started leaking water , cause the rubber seal was comming loose. Image 3/3: Tip: you can replace the broken rubber seal with silicone ( waterproof silicone)

Image 1/3: remove the plastic shell that is covering Torx screws. Image 2/3: remove it using a Stanley knife. Image 3/3: remove the screws ( at both sides ) and remove the plastic frame.
  • now we will clean out the bottom plate.

  • remove the plastic shell that is covering Torx screws.

  • remove it using a Stanley knife.

  • remove the screws ( at both sides ) and remove the plastic frame.

  • You'll see there will be a lot of dirt in the frame. blow (or vacuum clean) it. and put it back. also clean out the holes.

  • the machine is now clean and good to use again. I advise to do these hole guide one a year. Clean the "normal" filters everytime you use the machine. (just take out the fluff)
