Is the oven air or nitrogen? If it is air I would suggest more exhuast to pull the flux vapors out if the oven before they can condense in the cooling. If it is a nitrogn machine that makes it a little more complicated. If the filter system is clogged this will cause the build up in the cooling to build up faster and more often. I do not not know the Paragon flux filter system, but a cleaner and alot of elbow grease maybe be the only answer.Maintance...Maintance. I see alot of ads with oven manufatures stating maintance free or long lasting filter systems. But I have never had a filter system work without alot of maintance/claening.

If you have flux deposits on the cooling plates, try out Zestron's VIGON RC101...It is an extremely good product especially for reflow ovens and wave solder systems. Check it out...Minimal maintenance water based chemistry with no flash point...Much safer to use than IPA. HMIS rating of 0-0-0. It should work for your process.
