Paper **** inside
Probably rolled itself around the rollers. Got to be real careful to not have any exposed inside surface (of the laminating pocket) showing since that coating is heat-activated and sticky.
Unplug it, wait for it to cool, flip it over and remove the screws holding it together.
If the laminating pocket is just physically wrapped around one of the rollers, it will come right out. Re-assemble and go back to work being careful not to put anything through that is the least bit curly.
If the laminating pocket is stuck to one of the rollers, just chuck the thing out and buy another one. The cost of parts and repairs will exceed the cost of a new unit. To remove the adhesive, one would have to disassemble the entire motorized assembly and then heat the "offended" roller to more than 180?F to get the adhesive to soften enough to scrape it off. Then, while it\'s still hot, one has to use a solvent matched to the adhesive to remove all remaining traces (\'cause if there is any left, it will just suck the next laminating sheet right around the roller and you\'re back where you started).
- Use only laminating pockets for that brand (different models may have different temperature ratings). If the clerk says their laminating pockets are universal, ask the Clerk to guarantee in writing on his company\'s letterhead that they\'ll be responsible for any damage / repairs / replacement. They won\'t.
- Don\'t put anything that\'s curling through.
- Don\'t put anything through where part of the inside of the laminating pocket is exposed (because as it heats up it will stick to anything and everything it touches)!
