If it smells like it is burning it is most likely a wire joined with a wire nut that has gone thin over time. If you unplug it open up the back you will easily be able to see it. Just cut the wire back ,strip off 1/2" of insulation, twist the wires back together and put on a new wire nut.I need to get my heat presser looked at. I think it is shorting out. What kind of repairshop should I take it too?
Yeah it is. The only issue is it's usually not a good idea to mess with wire gauges. That's the same as putting a 20 amp fuse in a 15 amp circuit. lala Electricity... Don't get any on you!More than likely a wire is burned off from the top heat element. I just fixed mine for the second time. I went to a electrical place and bought heavier wire and fixed it. It had two wires burned from the heat element. Mine was a Pro world. Its about 10 years old and it has been a very good one. Its a easy fix.
Fine and dandy. Did it ever occur to you that I might be an electrician as well? It's ok to not know. Been there done that.Well when it keeps burning the wire off the end of the element, that tells me the gauge of the wire is too small or the end that clamps on the wire can not hold up to the heat. Not only that it was a recommendation from a certified electrician to step it up one gauge bigger.
Look I am not going to argue with you. I have better things to do. That was the recommendation from MY CERTIFIED ELECTRICIAN. I could care less what the hell you are. So as far as I am concerned this subject for me is closed. Go find some one else to ARGUE with.Fine and dandy. Did it ever occur to you that I might be an electrician as well? It's ok to not know. Been there done that.
Not arguing. Just trying to keep people safe. Done.Fine and dandy. Did it ever occur to you that I might be an electrician as well? It's ok to not know. Been there done that.

Leave it dude.Well I must have done something right. My press is working and I am still living. Besides that I didn't say nothing about changing a fuse and putting a bigger one in.
Good for you! Rock On!Thanks for all the feedback. I took my machine to an electrician as I have no idea about electrical stuff all I know is that if I flip the on switch it should work!! lol!! Any how there was a loose connection in there and it melted the circuit board. I got a hold of the manufacturer and they have overnighted me a new circuit board. I live near corpus christi, texas. I went to a screen printing shop to see what they would charge me to do my t-shirts I explained to them what had happened and that I needed these shirts by saturday. They wanted 2 charge me $3 bucks a shirt!!! so ill wait for circuit to come in and pull a couple of late nighters to get it done.
