43.00 The Extractor – Operation and Maintenance
Operation Plug the 35940 into a properly grounded 120 VAC electrical outlet. Place the front grill side of the unit as close to the smoke source as possible, without interfering with the user’s operation. Make sure the exhaust side of the unit is free from obstruction and away from the user’s face. Turn the lighted rocker switch to the on position. The Extractor is now ready to extract smoke and particulate away from the operator. A standard banana jack receptacle is located on the front of the unit to allow for grounding a wrist strap and cord assembly for ESD control purposes. For safety reasons, only ground cords with resistors of the proper value should be used with The Extractor.
User Maintenance The replaceable foam filter on the intake side of The Extractor is the only user serviceable part. To replace the filter, place the lighted rocker witch to the off outlet. Simply unsnap the plastic holder from the unit, dispose of the soiled filter, replace with a new filter (35942), and remount the plastic holder. The longevity of the filter will vary depending on how often The Extractor is used and how clean the environment I that it is placed in. A good rule of thumb is, “When it looks dirty, it’s time to replace it.” If the unit needs further maintenance, contact Menda’s customer service department for an RMA.
