Maintaining the MX960 Air Filter


For optimum cooling, verify the condition of the air filters.


  • Regularly inspect the air filter. A dirty air filter restricts airflow in the unit, producing a negative effect on the ventilation of the device. The filter degrades over time. You must replace the filter every 6 months.


    Always keep the air filter in place while the device is operating, except during replacement. The fans are very powerful and can pull small bits of wire or other materials into the device if the air filter isn't in place. These materials can damage device components.

  • The shelf life of polyurethane filter varies from two years to five years depending on the storage conditions. Store in a cool, dry, and dark environment. Wrap the media in plastic and store in an environment with relative humidity between 40%- 80% and temperature between 40° F (4° C) to 90° F (32° C). Note that if the material flakes, or becomes brittle when rubbed or deformed, it is no longer usable.
