Before adjust the machine, please turn off the power switch for safety purpose. (2). After installing the knives, tighten the nuts (N). Firmly touch the screw (P) by a philips screwdriver so that the screw wont follow the nut to turn, but do not tighten the screw (P) too deep (too tight), or the screw will touch the slide (M), and jam the slide. (3). Use one L8 wrench to move the slide so that the slide can slowly grind the upper and lower cold knives. This action helps the contact of the knives. When the slide is moved to the highest position, use the knife manual adjustment to test cutting. Fig. F L8 wrench L8 (4). After cutting test, if the left-hand side material cannot be completely cut off, or has cutting burrs, please tighten a little the left-hand side nut, and loosen a little the right-hand side nut (N). Then, test the cutting again. If the material is still cannot be perfectly cut off, repeat the above action till the cutting result is perfect.

If the problem still exists, the proximity switch or the computer box might be down.

3. The cutting length is incorrect: (1). The upper roller doesnt have Pressure nut of enough 111 pressure. Adjust the Upper roller pressure nut to 11 1 increase the pressure. See Fig. I. (2). The set screws of the feeding motor are loose. Tighten the screws. Fig. I (3). The screws of the belt wheel of the lower roller are loose, or the screws of the belt wheel of the feeding motor are loose. Tighten all of these screws. (4). The machine cuts two strips at the same time, and the two cut pieces have different lengths: Adjust the pressures on both sides of the upper roller till the two cut pieces have the same length. (5). The feeding motors shakes while feeding, and cannot operate smoothly: The driving box is down. Please replace it with a new one. 4. Press START BUTTON, but the machine has no action: (1).
