I need a manual for the knitting mate please?

Go get a couple packages of Large skewers. Boil some water in a Medium pan or tea pot. You want steam and lots of it so a tea pot would be ideal if you can stand the noise. A garment steamer might work too. Hold the book page edges down over the steam. Steam, and use your fingers to open a page or two. Place a skewer between each page. Remember you want steam not wet.use the skewers to hold the pages open as it dries... you can even hang the book by the skewers over a large pot.

In the mean time you might be able to find the manual online if you google the brand name of the knitting machine and instruction manual.

Steam presses are fairly simple machines. You have a boiler and steam ports. First if you've been using tap water, you probably have a build up of minerals and eventually killed the heating element.

Get a new one.
