Today I had to drag the enrober to a sink and totally hose down with hot water. Chocolate buildup where the metal belt meets the paper was so gunked up that the paper was not feeding properly.
I was amazed how much buildup is there. When I rinsed I discovered a removable catch pan there, but its not that easily removable.

I also accidentally sprung the rubber band belt off the motor and as the thing has no instruction book, it took a few attempts to figure out how the belt goes back on. If its incorrect you get a lot of drag marks of chocolate.
