SOURCE: 3M model 45CG Thermofax Machine how to change bulb?

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!!

Hello, I rebuild these machines. I dont think you need any parts to fix your machines. I find the reason for machines not shutting off is the machine needs the drive clutch and transmision needs cleaned. If you want to talk call 614-580-9676. Im eastern time zone.

Indeed this maybe able to be repaired, however to have any chance at a repair one MUST obtain a service manual, usually, one can Google search, or an approach to the manufacturer should yield a manual. In there are the troubleshooting steps to take to isolate and hopefully repair, also the all important parts numbers required to order spare parts.
This problem sounds like a typical power supply fault, or something is drawing too much current and is causing the SMPSU to shut down, as the protection mechanism is invoked. The fault indeed maybe Thermal, and perhaps using Freeze spray, on selected components may yield the faulty component? However as with anything one must start at the PSU and work out.
The other way of course is to get it looked at by a professional, and only first ask for a "Quote" as to any repair costs and go from there.

Thermofax machine repair


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....

I have a 3m thermofax 45cg every paper run through is completely


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).
