How to clean your Dymo LabelWriter

Dymo LabelWriterThis is a repeat of a post from a couple years ago with some updated links. A few questions and comments have come in to the helpdesk lately about Dymo LabelWriter printers getting gummed up. If you have experienced labels getting wrapped around the roller, follow these easy steps to clearing and cleaning the printer.

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. 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 printer.

If you don’t have your cleaning card you can find them at just about any office supply store or on Amazon. They cost between $8.00 and $17.00 for a pack of 10 cards depending on where you get them.
