My filament sensor is jammed (can't feed new filament through), and I'm looking for instructions on accessing it to clear it.
The UP Box+ was certainly not designed with service in mind ! So many inaccessible screw heads, screws fitted from the'wrong' direction for access.
How can I remove the RHS cosmetic panel ?
Preferably without losing my half-finished print.

OK, I bit the bullet and drilled holes in the side to access the filament sensor mounting screws.
Found a small piece of filament was the thing stopping me feeding new filament either way.
I also found I'd broken the roller lever off the microswitch :(

Can anyone advise the part number or specs for the microswitch ?
