I have inherrited a heat press which hasn't ever worked to see if I can get it sorted.

At the minute, the relay doesn't light up at all and after reading on here I think this is probably gone so I have ordered a new one from Amazon to be here tomorrow.

When I power on I do hear a click but it just doesn't heat up.


So this is the label:

This is the relay that doesn't light up

This is where all of the cables connect at the back:

They all look to be connected OK

This is the controller which I think came with it but doesn't work

This is the controller that seems to work, if I set the heat below natural temperature it clicks off and the power light goes off

Is there anything else that I should check while I wait for the delay to arrive tomorrow?

I dont get it? :eek:
You have an anchor. :D

I doubt you can find parts for it. Best guess is a blown fuse if you are lucky. Have you looked at the guts to see if anything has a burn mark on it? Is the heat element connected?

Seriously though, If you are handy with a testing kit you can find where the fault is. I would look inside the boxes with the electronics and look for burn marks or something blown or that doesn't look right.

If you are handy with a soldering iron you can probably fix it. These things are not that complicated but really, it isn't a very good press to begin with.

If the relay doesn't light up it's probably bad, but it is easy to test and make sure.
When the required DC switching voltage is applied on points 3 and 4, the mains power will flow between point 1 and point 2.
However, without a working controller, thermostat and thermocouple points 3 and 4 will not receive the switching voltage.
