Cleaning your Dymo LabelWriter

Dymo LabelWriterIf you've noticed a build-up of adhesive or had problems with labels wrapping around the print roller on your Dymo LabelWriter it maybe time to clean the print head. Here's a quick and easy way to clean the feed mechanism and print head of your Dymo LabelWriter. Every LabelWriter comes with a cleaning card. If you kept all of your paper work you should still have it. Remove the labels from the LabelWriter and tear open the package the cleaning card is in. Run the card through the printer like you would the labels. When I spoke with the Dymo tech staff they recommended running it through about a dozen times. Here is a quick video to show the process. Dymo suggests doing this once a month to maintain a clean feed mechanism. By keeping the print head clean you can improve your print quality and extend the life of the print head.

If you don’t have your cleaning card you can find them at just about any office supply store, or I would be happy to order some for your library. They cost between $8.00 and $17.00 for a pack of 10 cards depending on where you get them.
