The timer on my heat press does not start.Updated a year ago

Your heat press has a timer actuator switch that engages and disengages every time you close and open your machine. Over time, the metal arm on the switch may be bent to a position that does not allow for solid contact and engagement of the timer. If this is the case, you will need to bend it manually back to the original position. Follow these the steps below:

  • Locate the timer actuator switch that is located in the center of the machine behind the pressure rod. This piece is a small plastic component with an aluminum metal arm. You can identify this piece by the black/red color.
  • Lower down and see if the arm structure to your machine is clicking into the switch. If it is not, when you will need to be the metal arm upwards so that your machine will click into it.
