Follow these tips to prevent these types of repairs in the future.
1.Improper care & handling, such as impact with distal end, denting or loosening of nozzle.
2.Debris from cleaning towels can get clogged in nozzle openings.
3.If the channels are not flushed in due time, any substance can harden within the channel leaving a clog.
1.After each procedure, flush the A/W channels according to OEM instructions.
2.Clean the scope as soon as possible after procedure to ensure that no material has time to dry and harden within the channel /nozzle.
3.Use only lint-free material when cleaning the scope. Lint can collect in the nozzle and cause blockage.
4.Cleaning attachments with filters or screens should be inspected regularly. Missing screens or filters will allow material to be introduced into channel and caused blockage.
5.Avoid any impact at distal end. The nozzle sits higher than other components at the distal end and will receive the brunt of any trauma.
