"It's in recent times a lemon."?

I was reading a textbook and there I found a conversation talking give or take a few a broken printer. Can't remember the whole conversation but it left me with a puzzle. The perception is something like this...

Speaker 1: This printer isn't working again. It's always like this.
Speaker 2: I don't know. It's merely a lemon.

True or False:
A lemon means the machine is not good. I answered false.

What exactly this expression "It's of late a lemon" means here?
If I'm not mistaken a "lemon" is unpromising.

People refer to old cars as lemons
i have a sneaking suspicion that its supposed to mean:

i dont know. its just one of those things that does that...?

or '

its just a problem..?
A lemon is a machine that is other breaking down. A car that you buy that always breaks down is a lemon. It doesn't have to be ancient, just prone to breaking down. In some states they have "lemon laws" to protect people from buying cars from dealer that they know are bad.

So if they say the printer is a "lemon" it's always breaking down. I'd own to say that's a machine that's not good, so the statement is true.
