Open Question

I have a 3M 4550 Thermofax and it is super slow to start rolling. After a minute or so it kicks in and runs at normal pace. Is this a motor problem or a switch problem or what do you think? Thanks.

Not really sure what you are asking? Is it a thermofax that is making noise that you use to make transparency with. Or is it transparency making? I never worked on a transparency maker in 20 years of office machine repair... What is it? Is a old machine? If it is that old it may be time to replace it....

On either side of the drive table are single wires that go to each end of the lamp. Remove one screw on each side of the snap-in levers. Turn red handle on left side of unit as you are looking at it. Lift up each lever (screws you just removed) carefully. You can slide the entire unit out from under the clear plastic, then you will be able to see the lamp. It is a long halogen lamp. Do not touch the lamp with your fingers!! The oil on your skin will cause that area to overheat, boil, and blow. Disconnect wires on each side. Loosen bracket screws (2 on each side). Lift lamp out of heatsink tray by porcelain ends and slide out. Replace in reverse order. REMEMBER: DON'T TOUCH LAMP WITH FINGERS. USE GLOVES OR HANDLE BY PORCELAIN ENDS. GOOD LUCK!!

I am a major seller of these machines in ebay. The machine may need a new potentiometer. Build a carrier. Put two pieces of transparency plastic sheets together with a piece of tape and use this to carry your stencils. This will reduce the heat of the lamp. Rouben (rouben@ektalc.com).

Fan doesn't run while in idle and begins to over heat until I start driving agin then it cools back down to normal. Also the fan runs when engine is off and drains the battery.


The fan is only supposed to come on when there is excess heat .. in normal driving conditions it doesn't start. When you start your car in the morning the fan won't come on because the engine is cold.

With a hot engine - and it depends how hot the engine is - the fan will only kick in to prevent overheating. In heavy slow moving traffic or a traffic jam, the fan will kick in if needed.

The air flow through the radiator is usually sufficient -in normal driving conditions - to cool the engine.

When you park up and the car has a hot engine, the fan will kick in. This is perfectly normal. It is caused by a surge of hot coolant triggering the fan sensor. Perfectly normal.

The fan then should cut out after a while .. maybe 2-3 minutes at the most. If the fan runs continuously that suggests a fault in the temperature sensor switch.

Next time - wait by the car and see how long it takes for the fan to quit after you have parked up. It should stop of its own accord after a couple of minutes.

If the fan cuts off after a short while, and your battery is becoming drained, that's probably a battery or alternator fault.

Remember: when you start the car the fan won't kick in at idle speed because the engine is COLD, and there is no reason for the fan to start up ..
The fan WILL kick in for a couple of minutes after you have parked the vehicle and the engine is hot

Passanger window very very slow to roll down. but rolls up normally. problem worse in cold weather.


well without knowing what make & model its hard to say but sense im a master cert.GM CADDY 15A/ELECTRICAL TECHNICIAN. ive had tons of experence with lots of window problems in 12 years. but i would say that the window motor is just getting week and sense the spring on the window regulator is for helping the motor roll up i would say that thats why it rolls down slow(because the spring is to much for the week motor to push against) or possibly the contact points inside the master window switch could have bad contacts causing low voltage in one direction. ive also seen worn window guide channels(where the window edges silde in the door) causing the window to bind when going in one direction. try lubricating the channel with silicone spray. 3m wet type.
