Step 5: Use Orange Handles to Fully Remove Assembly

Use the orange handles on both ends to pull the transfer belt assembly out entirely. Slide the belt out cautiously, maintaining its level to prevent scratches or punctures.

Step 6: Insert New Assembly

Once the old assembly is out, it’s time to install the new transfer belt assembly. Grab the assembly by the 2 orange handles. With the gears toward the back, smoothly insert the assembly back into its slot. If it helps, you can go in with the right side first and then push in the left side. Slide the assembly in as far as you can, then let go of the orange handles and push the assembly in where it says ‘R6’.

Step 7: Re-insert Finger Screws

After successfully inserting the new assembly, re-insert the orange thumb screws by turning them clockwise. Barely push on them until you feel them grab the threads. Then you can tighten them until they are snug, but not too tight. Careful threading is crucial to avoid any potential issues like cross-threading.


Step 8: Re-insert the Waste Cartridge

Following the replacement, place the waste cartridge back into position and push it into place until you hear a click to ensure a secure fit. Make sure the orange latch is turned to the right to lock it in place.
