Jeron. Your temperature gun may be inaccurate. That is not unusual. I believe that the warranty is not valid on second ownership. You could verify that by contacting Hotronix. 800-727-8520
Don't put your faith in the infrared temperature gun when checking the platen temperature. The reflectivity factor of different platens affects the temperature readings.Hey everyone I have a questions about the temperature setting on the maxx press. i bought it used for $400 and it has a build date of 04/11.
It seems to heat up 20 degrees hotter than what the lcd says its at. So if i set it to 320 degrees it will heat up and the lcd will read 320 but then a temp gun will show the heating element is at 340. It is constant all the way through the temp range its just always higher than the screen says by 20 degrees. For me its not a probe
I was curious if this is how it should work to help with cooling down to much on a cold garment or if its a faulty temp sensing unit or something.
Also while i'm not worried about fixing it because i know the problem is there, and i'm the only one that uses it right now. But i would like to know if it is fixable so if anyone else used it they wouldn't be over heating things because they weren't aware of the issue.
P.S. kind of a side question. Does the warranty on the heating element transfer to me being the second owner who bought used??
