Whhhhheeeeeewwww! What a pain. My fingers hurt from trying to be gentle and my nerves are on edge. I don't have those Rossmann-size balls when it comes to my own stuff, I guess. Anyway, have many people have done this yet? Mine is two months old and was already caked with dust. I usually clean the insides of my own machines (as well as many work ones) every couple of months and this isn't encouraging. Or is this not "normal" behavior? For the first time ever I would be happy taking it in to have it cleaned. For zero dollars, of course. Side note: I noticed that reseating the screws gets rid of the creaking noise the case makes...for a while.
