Rodney, your press does not have any configurable power settings? You might be able to instruct it to consume less amps; it will force the machine to heat up slower, but better be working than not working at all...
Yesterday, I was trying to do some test t-shirts using the sample plastisol transfers that I've received and every time I tried to preheat my heat press, the power to my office went out.
So far I've received some great samples and information from First Edition, Transfer Express and Dowling Graphics.
I guess the heat press is pulling too much juice for my home office outlet, so I've called the electrician and he's coming by this afternoon to give me an estimate to get it working.
I'm not exactly sure what I should be asking him to do. I know the press is 20 amps, so I think I might need a dedicated plugin for it. Don't know the right electrical terminology
I searched through the forums and only found one post about not having enough power, I'm surprised it doesn't come up more for those working from home.
