My heat press continually heats and does not stop.Updated a year ago

If your heat press continually heats up without stopping, this could be an indication that your solid state relay is not shutting off when it has reached the desired temperature. To resolve this please follow the steps below:

  • Check the wires that go into your solid state relay. Make sure wires on port #1 and port #2 are on their own designated spot. If your wires are crossed from the solid state relay test, you will need to place the wires back to the original spot or else it will continue to heat and not stop.
  • Check the red light on the solid state relay when it reaches your desired temperature. The light should turn off or blink when it reaches the temperature if it is working correctly. If it doesn’t turn off, then you will need to replace the solid state relay.
