Cleaning Push

The following suggestions are in reference to the Push's outer-casing only. Do not attempt to open Push's casing - this will invalidate your warranty.

Generally, cleaning with a dry cloth can clear the casing of scuffs and dust.

Avoid liquids when possible! As with any gear, avoid permanent and direct sunlight.

If there are food stains or other caked materials on Push, a damp cloth and a little soap can be used. Be cautious about the amount of liquid used on the cloth. Ensure excess liquid is not dripping around the device pots and buttons.

The encoders can also be removed to clean out any dust that gathers behind them however Ableton cannot be held liable for any damage caused in doing so.

Tips on avoiding cosmetic damage

To avoid surface scratches on Push, we recommend not placing it unprotected in your backpack where it can scratch against the zipper.

Should you need to bring Push out to a performance, you could cover it with a cloth before placing it in your backpack in order to protect its surface from knocks and scratches and to stop the buttons from deteriorating.

A 19" laptop sleeve will also house Push comfortably.

The USB cable and power supply should be packed separately. Leaving either connected can damage the ports when transporting Push in a backpack.

Note that due to the geometry of Push, the hard corners are the most suceptible to paint-loss.
