Do first check to see if you can manually remove the strips, either with a scour pad or with a microscope and tweezers/a knife. It's usually faster, and less likely to ruin your board.

       * There are two vacuum hoses. One runs from the extraction hood (the round plastic bit inside the main bay) to the rear interior wall of the tool, and the second runs from the outside backside of the tool to the vacuum system (the tall white box to the tool’s right). You should be able to remove both of these and check for clogs.       * There are two vacuum hoses.
