GBC ultima 65 bad smell - too hot?

The laminator is suddenly putting off a stronger than usual "hot melting plastic" smell. Also the first laminate starts off with this yellow burnt looking crease/line all the way across the laminate. I think it is getting to hot but I do not see how to adjust the temperature. I recently had to wipe down the rollers using a damp 3m pad to remove some residue but I got rollers very clean.

    Bad smell - too hot?? Cont. To clarify. I think the rollers are clean so I don't know what accounts for the very strong smell as if the plastic is burning. I think the plastic between rollers is getting too hot and that is why the laminate first starts with a yekkiwish brown burnt line running the entire length of the roller. Mt machine doesn't appear to have temperature controls and manual doesn't mention temperature. Any ideas how to adjust temperature? Or other ideas?

By "upper tension" do you mean the hex screw located inside the left panel? If you tighten this until there is no space between the heat rollers it should eleminate the problem. If it is continues to loosen, back the screw out, apply a small amount of locktight to the threads before replacing the screw.You can find locktight at any hardware store usually in the Paint section near the glues. Hope this helps. Good luck

The problem would either be UNEVEN pressure of the rollers from one side to the other OR the roller sets are NOT parallel. The cogs should have NOTHING to do with it.

You need to loose the vertical plastic wall on the left side, and pull it up and to the left, only then you would be able to take pink rollers and metal piece away. Step by step do this (BTW, make pictures of each step if you think you will not be able to assemble it back) :

Download parts scheme here (if link is broken I can send you; write to ororeivis [at] g mail com):
http://www.gbcconnect.com/assets/docs/H425_PARTS_POUCH_LAMINATOR.pdf

Take the lid (3) off and hang it on the corner.
Next goes off (42) part.
Now focus on the left side. Take to the side part (30) with 7mm wrench. Then both parts (14) from both sides [4 in total]. Then both parts (2). Then take out screws that are holding this vertical plastic wall place. There is two screws from the outside of laminator in the bottom!
Then black roller (36) you lift up and take out by sliding to the side. Then two long black metal pieces.
Now you should be able to pull up and move to the left that vertical plastic wall on the left side of laminator. If not, try loosing some screws that are in this wall.
Be careful taking melted jammed stuff away from heating panel. Do not over-scratch it, as it is very sensitive.

I fix these machines for a living. As the machines age the heaters in the red rollers dont heat evenly and cool areas dont seal well. If you have a heat gun check the temperature along both roller. Some variation is normal but very cool areas that dont seal well point to needing new heaters. GBC machines work well but the parts cost a fortune. if one heater is going bad the other one is too, change in pairs ONLY, heater sets are near 300 bucks last time I checked:(

I have a GBC Ultima 65 Laminator and the lamination is not adhering. The materials I am laminating are coming apart.


Are you letting the laminator reach operating temperature? If the ready light is on and it is not getting hot then you may have a problem with the temp. sensor. Put your hand near, but not on, the top roller to feel if it is getting hot. Don't touch the roller in case it is hot. If it is getting hot then wait for the ready light to illuminate(about 10 minutes).

The laminating paper started coming out rippled half way through a roll. Do you have any suggestions?


Usually caused by uneven pressure / heat. If this has a lot of use look near ends see if you have small ridge that goes around roll. Would be where edge of paper would be. If you do your pressure roll is worn and no longer provides constant pressure feed.
replace rollers.
