Don’t fret! It’s most likely one of four simple pressure points that just needs a little push. Four subtle, yet mandatory buttons or levers must be depressed - or as you have discovered - the machinery won’t operate. So, let’s get familiar with all of the mandatory ON buttons on your PS Mailers pressure sealer machine.
Location # 1 - Side Access Door
Inside the Side Access Door, feel around and you’ll find a button that if not depressed, prevents the machine from running. When the door is closed, the button will depress automatically. So, make sure the Side Access Door is fully closed.
Location # 2 - Toggle Switch & Fold Plate
Correct insertion of the back fold plate is key to the pressure sealer machine being fully operational. When the back fold plate is installed in its final resting position, it depresses a toggle switch located on its right side. The depressed toggle switch is what tells the pressure seal machine to run forward. [Does not apply to the PSM1800.]
Location # 3 - On/Off Switches
Okay, I know this seems like the most obvious button, but notice I said, “ON/OFF Switches.” Depending on the model you have, there could be two “ON/OFF” mechanisms and they both have to be in the ON/depressed position. The main power switch must be in the ON position. Then, make sure the RUN button on the control panel is pressed when you’re ready to start processing your pressure seal documents. If you have the PSM1800 or the PSM3000, you only have the ON/OFF button on top of the machine.
Location # 4 - Reset Button
Make sure the Reset Button is depressed and, therefore, in the ON position. It’s located on the back of the machine near the main plug. If it’s not depressed (or has been “tripped”), the pressure sealer machine won’t run.
Always remember these four simple spot checks. They’ll typically get your PSMailers pressure sealer machine running smoothly once again.
