GBC DocuSeal 125 Laminator will not feed through machine after it had a jam removed. It still heats up.
Had a sheet go through crooked and it jammed the machine. I used release and it still pulled out hard. Now it heats but will not feed or pull another sheet in. It is a fairly old machine, but doesn't get used very often and we shut it off each time.

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.
It will beep when you turn it on to acknowledge power. It will also beep when it reaches ready condition. Your laminator has safety switches for the lower feed tray and upper heat shield. Any time the upper shield is lifted the power is shut off. When you lower it down the power is turned back on, causing a beep. The same is true for the lower feed table. When it is removed and then re installed the machine beeps. These are safety features so that the laminator doesn't turn on when you are reloading it or unjamming it. Check that the safety switches are fully engaged if you get unnecessary beeping.
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.

Does the machine panel light up? If not, make sure the lower feed tray is installed correctly and the upper shield is closed. If the panel lights up and it still doesn't heat up then you may have an electronic problem. It could be a triac, which controls the voltage applied to the heat elements. If the machine goes to ready,but it is not hot then check the temperature sensor.
Let it cool off for a while, then try reversing it. If it won't run it would have to be taken apart to clear the jam - a messy job! Fellowes does not usually consider these to be repairable but I would call them on their Toll-Free number to see what they can offer (800) 955-0959
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):
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.
