Question about Fellowes Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

We have Fellowes Jupiter 125 laminator and it isn't heating up. This is the second one we have gotten. The first one was broken. We used this one for about a month and it quit working, too. We have been using an old laminator we had in the office ever since. I need to know what we have to do to get this one fixed.

SOURCE: A laminating sheet is stuck

OOOOooooooooohhh!!!!!
Hate to tell you, BUT, the laminate is melted on the fuser. You learned the hard way, htere are specific laminates for different types of machines, the reason is because of the amount of heat it can tolerate. If you look in the back of the box it will tell you what machines they are good for, if yours is not listed, you should look at the manual or the website.

You will have to take it apart and remove the melted plastic, with hopefully minimal damage to your machine, otherwise the fuser will need to be replaced.

Set- up
The only assembly required for an @Home laminator is attaching the wire support rack, which ensures that the sheets coming out of the machine cool in a flat position and do not curl. Using the illustration on the inside of the manual cover as a reference, push the ends of the rack " into the holes ! in the back of the machine as far as they will go.
Operation
Your laminator works by means of two rollers, one on top of the other, each turning in the opposite direction to draw a plastic, open-sided pouch coated with adhesives through them and out of the machine. Understanding this simple mechanism will help you decide what materials you can laminate without risk of damage to your machine. You can feel confident laminating all materials that are flat and dry, for example, but should avoid those that:
• Contain liquids, gels, or even moisture, that could escape
• May crumble or otherwise disperse under pressure, or
• Are likely to break, as could glass or rigid metals and plastics.
With hot lamination, where the rollers are also heated, make sure you don't put anything into the pouch that could melt and leak into the machine.
Once you have checked the suitability of your contents, you need to decide whether to use cold or hot lamination. Cold lamination, also called self-adhesive lamination, bonds materials between an adhesive and a non-adhesive sheet solely by means of pressure. As a result, this method tends not to produce as tight a seal against water and the elements as
hot lamination, but can be useful for heat-sensitive materials, such as thermal paper or fragile documents. While the cold method used to be the only good way to laminate photographs, today's heated-roller technology enables you to achieve excellent results and is therefore probably the better choice.

The contents and the mode decided, the next step is to choose the right pouch for the job.
Hot and cold laminating pouches are especially designed for their separate purposes and cannot be substituted for one another. When it comes to pouch size and thickness, you should make sure that the one you buy is no wider than the entry # of your model and not thicker, together with the contents, than the capacity of your machine. If you are laminating paper of a standard size and weight, you can quickly see your pouch thickness options on
the selection guide stored under the machine:
• White and gray boxes indicate that the pouch/paper combination can be used
• No box on the table indicates that there is no combination possible with your machine.
If you find several pouch options for your document, take the one that best suits the purpose:
The thicker the pouch, the more rigid and resistant the laminated sheet will be. If you are not sure of the paper's weight or are laminating other materials, the combined thickness of the pouch and contents should be your guide. The maximum in this case is the equivalent of a stack of 6 to 7 sheets of standard office paper. (See Product Profile for details on capacity limits.)
If even the smallest size pouch will leave a lot of space around your contents or you want the lamination to conform to the shape of your contents, wait to cut it to size until after lamination: a laminating pouch is precision-cut to ensure minimal leakage of adhesives, and this cannot be replicated with scissors or a paper-cutter. You'll also find the pouch easier to cut when it is hardened.
How you arrange your contents in the selected pouch is important in both cold and hot modes. To produce professional-looking results and ensure a long working life for your machine, follow these simple guidelines (see illustration on the inside of the manual cover):
1. Lay contents as close as possible to the sealed edge of the pouch, which is the end you will be feeding into the machine. If the material is more than 1 cm or 1/2 inch from this edge, the rollers will not have enough traction to draw in the pouch and will turn continuously without advancing it.
2. Arrange multiple items close to each other in the pouch, with the edges no farther than 1 cm or 1/2 inch apart. If there is a larger gap between items, the rollers will slip into it and lose their traction. As above, the rollers will turn without advancing the pouch.
3. Leave a free margin around contents of at least 3 mm, or 1/8 inch, on the three unsealed sides of the pouch to guarantee a strong seal. This is a minimum, meaning you can have as much margin beyond this as you wish.
To begin laminating, place your machine on a work surface where you have enough room at the back to allow the full length of the pouch to clear the material exit '. Plug in the machine and press the power button &, which will start the rollers turning. If you plan to do laminate both cold and hot in one session, it makes sense to start with cold, so you don't have to wait for the machine to cool down. (This can take one to two hours.)
In either case, to save energy and reduce wear-and-tear on your machine, turn off the machine as soon as you are finished by pressing the power button &. If you forget, however, the machine has an automatic switch-off function, which causes it to turn itself off one hour after not being used.Cold Lamination
With the contents and the pouch you have selected at hand:
1. Turn temperature selector $ to . The machine will indicate its readiness by turning on
the green standby light % and giving an audible signal.
If the machine is at room temperature, this will be almost immediate.
2. Place contents in pouch in line with the guidelines (p. 5). Lay the pouch on a flat surfaceand open it so that the adhesive side, which is covered by a glossy protective sheet, is vertical.Place the contents face up onto the transparent, non-adhesive side, but do not closethe pouch.
3. Insert sealed edge of the open pouch into the entry, as
shown, bending the protective sheet backwards over the
machine and grasping its free edge. As the machine draws
in the pouch, keep holding on to the protector, which will be
peeled away from the adhesive side as the pouch moves
through. Although it is easier to take off the protector and
close the pouch before you feed it in, you will create air bubbles
and other irregularities that the machine will not be able
to even out.
The finished sheet will emerge from the material exit ' by itself. Remove it from the support
rack only after it has completely cleared the exit.
Hot lamination
With the contents and the pouch you have selected at hand:
1. Turn temperature selector $ to or . The boxes in the selection guide you used to
choose the pouch size and thickness also indicate what temperature setting you should use
with your pouch:
• If the box is white, use ,
• If the box is gray, use .
If you are not sure of the weight or thickness of the contents or pouch, you will avoid possible
damage if you start with the lower temperature. With the lower setting, the machine will take 5 minutes to warm up and with the higher, one minute longer. When the laminator has reached the setting you chose, it will indicate its readiness with a green standby light % and an audible signal.
2. Place contents in pouch in line with the guidelines (p. 5).
Unlike with cold laminating, the contents can be face down or up within the pouch. Close the pouch once the contents are arranged.
3. Insert sealed edge of the closed pouch into the entry #,
as shown, and release it as soon as the machine begins
to drawn it in, as shown in the illustration.
The finished sheet will emerge from the material exit ' by
itself. Remove it from the support rack only after it has completely cleared the exit.

Maintenance
To keep your laminator free of adhesives that could hurt the quality of your work, you should clean the rollers from time to time, or frequently, depending on how often you use the machine. The best way is to do this right after you have finished hot laminating, because the rollers will still be hot, which is necessary for the cleaning process.
To clean the rollers:
• Turn selector to if it is not already on this setting
• Wait for the readiness light and signal
• Insert the cleaning sheet included in the package, repeating one or two times
• Insert a plain white sheet of paper to test for remaining traces, and
• Reinsert the cleaning sheet, if necessary, and retest.
To clean the exterior of your machine, just wipe with a soft cloth dampened with plain water.

Why won't my laminator turn on?


There is a heating unit inside of a hot laminator. Sometimes when you use this machine for too long it can damage some of the internal components because most of those things are full of plastic. You may want to see if Fellows can take it back under warranty. If they can't you are going to have to get a new one.

Fellowes laminator


Plz try the "Jam free" lever located on the top LEFT of the laminator. You ca try to feed another film in....hoping it will force the pouch out. Otherwise, you will have to take the cover off and unroll the pouch from the inside rollers. Good luck!

once you take it apart it voids all warrants if you have any.
if you do not have any warrant parts than that the only way you are going to fix the issue.
here is what some one gave me some tips on disassembly of equipment. draw a picture of the device, mark the area of screw layouts, after separating the 2 parts draw diagram of each part, make foot notes on what you did, screw locations, parts removed, parts cleaned, PUT EVERYTHING IN A LINE IN THE ORDER OF REMOVAL PARTS, than work backwards and put everything back the way you took it apart, you should not have any extra parts and it should work fine. than if it every happens again you have your notes and information on hand to help you. you could try this site.
