I had the same problem. Took apart, cleaned, and lubed the fuser unit. Problem went away.

Make sure your laminator is heated up properly before feeding material through. Usually, for a low-end laminator, you will wait anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes before it is completely heated up, allowing you to use it. There should be a red button that will tell you it is NOT ready yet, and a green button will tell you it is.

SOURCE: my new TL901 just stopped working.

It is probable the heating element burned out. The heating element is just a long tubulat incandescent lamp.

You could try returning it to the store and exchanging it for another one. Otherwise in the documentation there is a contact information page, probably the phone number would be the best, and work with them that way should you get any issues from the store.

You need to loose the vertical plastic wall on the left side, and pull it up and to the left, only then you would be able to take pink rollers and metal piece away. Step by step do this (BTW, make pictures of each step if you think you will not be able to assemble it back) :

Download parts scheme here (if link is broken I can send you; write to ororeivis [at] g mail com):

Take the lid (3) off and hang it on the corner.
Next goes off (42) part.
Now focus on the left side. Take to the side part (30) with 7mm wrench. Then both parts (14) from both sides [4 in total]. Then both parts (2). Then take out screws that are holding this vertical plastic wall place. There is two screws from the outside of laminator in the bottom!
Then black roller (36) you lift up and take out by sliding to the side. Then two long black metal pieces.
Now you should be able to pull up and move to the left that vertical plastic wall on the left side of laminator. If not, try loosing some screws that are in this wall.
Be careful taking melted jammed stuff away from heating panel. Do not over-scratch it, as it is very sensitive.

probably will be best to junk it and get another one as the cost to repair will probably exceed the new cost.

While I'm laminating, the roller stops turning. I have to manually turn it. It works for another foot or so, then stops again.

It sounds like a broken tooth in the roller gear. It advances about the same as the diameter of that roller. Best just replace it.

How can I fix the edges of my laminator to seal.

make sure you are at 300 degrees temp, you can slightly adjust the pressure on each side by tightening down the 5mm hex nuts on top of each bearing housing. There is alot of foreign films out there right now that also have substandard glue that are causing all kinds of lamination problems. USA film always works

Laminate did not come out it just went back inside on roller

warm the machine back up, get the glue sticky again, then work it off, either by going in forward or reverse, whichever works best for the given situation. Don't use anything sharp as the rollers damage easily....very expensive

Laminator wont feed

If the motor is running, then the cog that drives the roller system may have failed. Laminators built today are made with plastic (nylon) roller drive cogwheels that crack. Especially if the fed media is too thick. Put the machine into run mode and feed a single piece of card (a playing card will do) into the feed slot. Lightly hold the card and see if you can feel the card moving. To check if the motor is in reverse, feed the card into the output slot.

If you are handy with a screwdriver, then with it disconnected, remove the lid (about six screws underneath) and check the rollers for old lamination sheets that could be stuck to one of them. This would limit the feed gap between the rollers, preventing you from putting your media in.

LAM901 Laminator has no reverse. Have a pouch wrapped around the rollers.

carefully remove the pouch by cutting it into pieces with a sharp box cutter (be carefull not to cut the rollers) then pull out the pieces from the rollers then rethread the laminate rolls into the machine as you always have

Belt stops at slow speeds

Check the walking belt is tensioned correctly.

Remove power from the mach.

Most machines you should be able to slide your hand under belt, only to about the center of your palm or maybe your thumb.

if walking belt tension is correct. make sure the delt has lube on it. Your owners manual will determine what type (wax or silicone) or manufacturer to use.

When inspecting the deck (laminated board under the walking belt, which it slides on top of), check for wear or damage.

Worn decks and belts should both be replaced at the same time.

Beyond a walking belt area issue, check the drive belt under the motor hood. connecting the drive motor to the front roller. try twisting the belt on its axis. about a 30degree deflection would be standard. If this belt is loose, the front roller is loosing its drive.

Sounds primarily like a belt/deck lube or wear issue.

Epic t60 the front roller stops not the belt on the motor. the belt dosen't slip just the front roller stops turning

The pulley on the front roller is pressed on. Sounds like you pulley has broken free from roller. The front roller needs to be replaced. A quick fix which I've seen last a long time. First verify that this is what your problem is. If it isn't obvious mark roller and pulley, use machine and see if your mark moved. Sounds like yours should pretty easy to tell. If it is indeed lose, mark where pulley sits on the roller. Remove the drive belt. Take a hammer and gently bump pulley to the side. Apply some super glue where pulley normally sits. Bump pulley back into place and let dry. Replace drive belt and check.
