A friend of mine runs a tshirt heat transfer press, but he went against all good advice, and bought it off of ebay, and there seems to be no name or model on the unit. yesterday, there was arcing at the red wire at the bolt entrance into what i think is hte thermostat before it gets to the element. by the time i got there today to look at it, the wire had completely burnt off at that bolt (the bolt is the one that enters into the cast base of the platen.) i am not able to locate schematics or diagrams or parts even for this type of item. the only thing i was able to locate on the machine is the number "SH09BD". the guy who is stuck with this is even less knowledgeable than me about this press. does anyone have an idea where i can get more info, and parts? i still htink the thermostat went out, and the wire caught, or perhaps the arcing of a bad connector caused the thermo to overheat.....thank you! --- laurel :)
In my case the relay from the thermostat went bad. I searched long and hard since the relay was made by Helishun and is not imported to the US. OMRON makes an interchangeable relay (part # G8P-1C2T-F DC 12). Grainger electrical supply has it under stock # 1YCY3. I also found that the wire labeled 13 was not coonnected in the connector. I also had to change 2 of the spade connectors as the originals were too small for the OMRON relay. The relay is mounted on the frame at the bottom right when you remove the back plate.

I just bought one. They are great! But there were no instructions in the packaging. I bought it from Godfreys and have always found them very helpful so maybe call them if my instructions below don't help. I just went with what I thought was right and haven't had any problems.
1 ensure appliance is turned off and unplugged.
2 press down and twist cap to release then it will unscrew all the way out.
3 fill with a maximum of 220mls of water (it comes with a little filling jug like you would get with an iron and it the max level on it is 220mls so I have assumed this is the amount you need)
4. Screw cap back on and on the final turn push cap down tight and twist - this appears to lock the cap in place.
5. Plug in and turn on
6 Let it heat for about a minute
7. Choose the connector - I find the best one is the one with the little brush attached.
8. Make sure the hose is locked into place on the unit properly. You need to slide it on then twist to lock. Same with the connector on the other end.
9. Face the hose and nozzle end away from you and squeeze the trigger on then back of the appliance.
Happy steam cleaning!
Ps I find it best to use the steam in burst of no more than 20 to 30 seconds as it seems to need a second or two now and then to build pressure/heat during use. I could be wrong but it seems to work better for me this way anyway.
I have the same unit and the same model number. Mine also not heat up. upon investigation I noticed the heating element has a 4 wires which I believe each pair (2 wires) meant for 100/120V and the other one is for 220/240V. I checked 2 wires (1 pair) has an open circuit while the other pair is ok. I directly connected the heating element to the power and it was heated up. I measured the resistance and it was around 78 ohm. from my lame calculation this is for 100/120V heating element. the 220/240V was busted.
Since mine on 220/240V power grid, to use the working 78 ohm heating element the estimated power would be P=VxV/R, around 738W which is way too high than the rated power (365W) for this voltage. I plan to add the dummy resistor 82 ohm + 78 ohm heating element to reduce its power around 370W. Hope it works.
hello I have a ht-e15 model heat press machine that I bought off of ebay I just took it out of the box and cant get it to come on it didn't come with a manual so I don't know if I am doing something wrong could you please help me
Calore model 63005 has a problem with the wiring to the heating elements being under rated, they burn out and the heater stops working. All the controls still work and it all seems ok but no heat comes out. I bought 2 of these heaters from Home Depot and both failed in the first week of operation. To fix u must have a qualified person replace the faulty wiring with 14 guage solid copper wire. This is what i did, But i do not suggest this course of action. heres what i suggest you do, first try to get a refund of your hard earned money, second take said heater, grab buy cord and smash on ground until it fits in a flat rate box from the post office and mail back to Calore with a note expressing your displeasure in them almost intentionally killing your family. I say intentionally because this product obviously has not been tested otherwise they would have found this problem and fixed if they really cared. In the worst case it has been tested and a decision was made to go ahead and market it with its problem relying on volume for profit. Anyway its just another product that demostrates that your money is more important than your safety to these companies. Dont buy any Calore products and send these companies a message that we will not tolerate such irresponsibilty.
I would Recommend that you update the Alarm panel your alarm company. Because then they would be able to show and give you information on how to use the new alarm, instead of having an alarm panel that is out of date and no longer has a company backing it. Good Luck!
We had the same problem with the same furnace, CODE 32 DISPLAYED ON THE LEDS. I fixed it by cutting the air inlet pipe and using a hair dryer to supply heated combustion air to the furnace. Once I did that it started to run more and more until it finally heated the house up and works fine, so far so good.
We had a severe drop in temps, sunday it was 40 and rain and that night it dropped to -5 I suspect those conditions contributed to the problem. Wife observed this has never occurred before in 14 years of operation.
