Products affected: DM500™, DM525™, DM550™, DM575™
The wick draws EZ-Seal® solution from the tank onto the brush. Follow these steps to clean the wick:
  1. Open the feed cover and lift the E-Z Seal bottle out of its holder.
  2. Remove the moistener brush assembly.
  3. Place your finger in the moistener tank round guide and pull straight out.
  4. Gently lift the moistener tank up and out. CAUTION! The tank may be full of E-Z Seal liquid.        
  5. Remove the wick, using the metal shield to gently pry it out of the moistener tank.
  6. Clean the wick by running it under warm water.
  7. After cleaning the wick, place the shield on the wick, ensuring that there is no gap between the shield and the surface of the wick.
  8. Place the shield and wick assembly in the moistener tank and push down on the shield to push the assembly into the tank.
  9. Replace the moistener tank and gently slide it back into the machine, taking care not to crimp the supply tubing.
  10. Replace the moistener brush assembly by pushing it back on its track until it snaps into position.
  11. Check to ensure that the flap blade of the moistener brush assembly is under (and not over) the stripper finger.
  12. Verify that the moistener brush assembly is perfectly level with the feed deck.
  13. Close the feed cover.
