3. Turn off the power and remove the pressure measuring, temperature measuring elements and heaters on the machine head;

4. Pull out all the screws, lay them flat on the wooden board, remove the screw removal tool, remove and clean the screw components while hot, if the material penetrates into the screw mandrel and makes it difficult to disassemble the screw components, you can use a wooden hammer or a copper rod around the screw components. Tap lightly to loosen and then remove the component. If it is still difficult to take out, it must be put into the barrel again for heating, and the material can be unloaded while it is still hot after the material is melted.
