[Noisebridge-discuss] Heat press not functional, repair help needed.

Hi,

  Not to sound mean here, but you really should never touch an expensive piece of electronic gear if you don't know about replacing fuses properly.  Never replace a fuse with the wrong voltage.  It irks me a little when people go around fiddling with this nice gear and then ask for help after they've broken it worse.  What would help is:

1) the name + model number

2) google that, and you will find info on the fuse

3) google the fuse rating and voltage.


I've never seen a 25A 250V fuse before (that's 6,250 Watts!) but then again I've never used a heat press before.  Odds are, it was a 2.5A fuse (625) Watts.  But putting in the wrong fuse (automotive especially) you could have really damaged it.  Please, first pause and ask for help next time before you open things.


-Zach

 5eat press it was perfectly functional, but some people wanted to use it recently and found that it was not heating up nor displaying the temperature.

They removed the fuse and dropped it on the ground, breaking it. I went to buy a new fuse today. The old one had the markings F25A250V. However, I could only find a 25A 32V fuse at O' Reilly's so I went ahead and put that in. No luck and same symptoms.

I opened up the back to see if anything was visibly melted but I couldn't find anything wrong. I think the temperature controller is messed up.
