Introduction

Repair is complicated because no spare parts could be found.

Opening the cover : push buttons on the left and right side. The right side has a coil to prevent opening under power and can get stuck. Opening the cover : push buttons on the left and right side. The right side has a coil to prevent opening under power and can get stuck.

You now have access to the inside To measure the heating resistors detach the brown an blue wires leading to the roller assembly. Not the ones coming from the power cable and microswitches. Ohmmeter result:

  • Ohmmeter result:

    • 80 ohm : everything OK

    • 340-350 ohm : main heating circuit (above and under black rollers) broken

    • 100 Ohm : preheating (horizontally between orange and black rollers) broken

There are six screws fixing the motor and heating assembly to the bottom. (only two show in picture).

Heating elements are fixed on the  left and right with two screws And the resistor can be slided out. This  diagram helps detecting the faulty resistor.

I was unable to find spare resistors. But since I had two identical laminators, both with a broken resistor above the upper black roll, repair was possible. Many thanks if somebody can point to a provider for these spare parts
