My inlet roller for my conturo is getting gummed up.  What is the best way to get at it and what to use to clean it.

We usually recommend using a non-harsh glue remover that can help in cleaning the rubber rollers. Using an adhesive remover that is harsh could damage the rubber and can deteriorate them.

I just peel it off. It does not seem to stick well to the roller.

You may want to turn the glue feed down a little also.
