You may have some issues with the film bonding where the slits touch it. The heat rollers are rather expensive(approx. 300.00 each) , so you make the call. Do not try to cut any jammed film off of the rollers with a sharp object. Also, don't try to peel off film that is stuck to the rollers. Let the laminator warm up a little to melt the glue on the film. It should be easy to pull the film off then. If you try to pull it off cold it will remove chunks of the roller, which will cause pitting and poor adhesion.
first, remove both rollers with the film on them, then I usually cut the film between the red/orange rollers and the rear gray rollers, this allows you to run the laminator in either forward or reverse to unwrap the laminator, there is not exact science here, just use common sense and don't use anything sharp up against the rollers.

There isn't anything you can do, those machines are screamers. sometimes they start screaching right away, sometimes it takes a few rolls of film run through before they start, but they ALWAYS start to scream, sooner or later. it becomes loud enough that some people refuse to use it because they think its coming apart. not my favorite.
left hand side cover is probably off and excess light is getting onto the motor speed sensor. put the side cover back on and try it, most likely that will fix it. could also be the set screw on the right side is loose, error 1 means you have a speed problem. check gears and chain. only other part that has caused this in the past is the keypanel.
go to youtube and watch the video on GBC ultima65 film loading. sounds like you are not using a threading card to load laminator. Manila File folders work great to load laminators Westco Laminating Svcs 405-324-6092
Each heat shoe has a small thermal fuse, if either fuse is blown, the laminator keypanel will not operate. 99% fix everytime, just follow the wires from each heat shoe (right side of laminator) cover off. Ohm each set of wires and look for an open circuit. replace fuse (TCO) and it will work everytime...... Westco Laminating Service 405-324-6092

I fix roll laminators for a living. Its best with GBC machines to remove wraps where the film is stuck to the roller hot. trying to remove ilm adhered to the roller cold can not jusst remove the film but the rubber roller surface. Do note GBC heat rollers espically the red ones are over 500 bucks each:( Its easy to damage those rollers making the machine junk....
