Maintenance Dos and Don’ts
You have an electric file, but aren’t sure about the proper way to maintain it. Here are some tips to help your new machine achieve a long, healthy life.
Do cleanse the electric file regularly with a soft cloth or brush to remove any dust and debris that can settle in cracks and crevices. Make sure to unplug the machine before cleaning it.
Don’t apply lubricant anywhere on the machine. Most electric files feature bearings inside the hand-piece that are self-lubricating. Adding more oil can actually damage the bearings, not to mention heat them up, causing friction and heating the entire machine.
Do hold your electric file’s cord properly. Try to avoid constantly bending it, as the cord can become loose from the power supply or the handpiece. Hold the cord at a natural angle.
Don’t place the handpiece in disinfectant. You don’t want to cause interior damage to it.
Do remove the bit from the handpiece when you’re done using it.
Don’t switch your electric file to the reverse option while it’s in forward motion.
Do make sure the bits are centered properly. If not, the electric file stem will wobble and loosen, damaging the handpiece.
