Nope. The only regular cleaning it gets is vacuuming out the air intakes and cleaning the inside of the roasting 
chamber. After about two years it just stopped roasting properly, and I was told to take the chaff collector and dumpit 
in apot of boiling water for a few minutes. That cleaned out all the oils and gunk that had accumulated and it's worked 
perfectly ever since.
