The main difference being that some of these other machines do not have the easy to replace fuse, and are of different wattage (ranging from 1200 – 1800 watts).
How To Change The PowerPress Fuse
If you have the PowerPress model with the replaceable fuse, it’s super easy to change, and you probably don’t need any advice!
Nevertheless, I’ve taken some photos to show you how to do it below. In our PowerPress heat press review people often ask about the fuse, but sometimes, unfortunately, don’t have the model that makes it easy.
I had a fuse blow not long after I got my machine (totally my fault), and after ordering the correct fuses (which are very cheap, and linked below) it took 5 seconds to replace the blown fuse.
Here are the correct fuses for the PowerPress heat press (1800 watt model). You will see in the picture above that the new fuses on the left are not identical to the original fuse which is blown. This doesn’t matter! As long as you’re getting 110v slow blow 15 amp fuses. If your machine is not 1800 watt you will need a different fuse.
If you’ve got the replaceable fuse model, it’s obvious!
You can’t miss the easy-to-replace fuse. It’s in plain sight, just below the power switch. As you can see, turn left to open it up!
Remove cover to replace fuse
All you need to do is unscrew the cover, remove the old fuse (which will be obviously blown if that is your problem), and slide the new fuse in. It doesn’t matter which way it goes in.
And that’s all there is to it! Your PowerPress Heat Press should be all go after that.
I don’t know why some machines turn up without a manual, but I hope you find some value in it.
Please let me know if there’s anything else you need to know about how to replace the heat press fuse, or anything else about the PowerPress manual. Feel free to comment below or to message through our contact form.
