Dymo LabelWriter Wireless - Caring for Your Printer

Caring for Your Printer

The LabelWriter printer is designed to give you long and trouble-free service, while requiring very little maintenance. You will get the best possible performance from your LabelWriter printer if you follow the setup instructions that appear in Getting Started on page 10, and the cleaning procedures described in this section.

To keep your LabelWriter printer working properly, you should clean it from time to time. Dusting the outside of the printer occasionally will help keep foreign matter from getting inside the printer. However, it is still a good idea to periodically perform some basic interior maintenance, such as cleaning the label path with a LabelWriter cleaning card (available from the Dymo Shop).
