NO. Pretty please, do not do this. Unless you have special instructions from a member of the Customer Service team or it is the Zombie Apocalypse and you need a place to stash your last $100, DO NOT DO THIS. It will void your warranty and limit the assistance that customer service can give you in case of a clog. If you are having issues with the MOD-t please contact customer service by chat, phone, or e-mail. We will walk you through steps in a specific order to both diagnose your MOD-t and try to avoid causing further complications to the unit. Thank you so much for your understanding!
