Hi,
I have a bit of an issue with my heat pres witch is connected to a compressor.
Sometimes when I pull the handle, nothing happens, like the bottom part is not rising so it can create pressure and I can not print anything. After I try for a couple of times it works.
I checked the temperature and the pressure and they're all fine.
Any thoughts on what the problem is ?
Thanks

Sounds like the air is not entering the "bag" that pushes the platen up. It could be a faulty valve. I'd unplug it, let the air out and take apart whatever is necessary to check that valve that opens when you pull the handle down. It could be a build up of moisture. Do you drain your compressor everyday? It's a must. Do you have a water filter between the hose and compressor? If moisture builds up in the lines it will push into the machine, causing small blockages in the valve that will, eventually, be pushed through and putting moisture into the machine (which you don't want). That's my guess, anyway.
