Do you have this problem w/ your xyron?

Posted by syak (My Page) on

Hi,
I have the smaller sticker xyron that I really love. The 500. My problem is when I run something through the machine a small film of glue spreads on top too. Just on the side that goes in first and it is only a small amount but It is enough to get something stuck to it or for it to look dirty. I use a gum eraser to get it off but it is a pain.
Do you have this problem? What would you suggest?

Thanks for your help.

Sandy

Hi Sandy,

I don't have a xyron, but use large laminators at work and if left on too long they get a yucky oily "ooze" that gets on the items being laminated. I run a piece of scrap paper thru first to soak up the ooze.

If the glue is only on the first item you run thru then a small strip of paper run thru first should take care of it.
If it is on every item, maybe it is set too hot?? (Do xyron use heat?)

HTH

Thanks for your help Jill but no the xyron does not use heat and it happens to each item I put through. It is just on the one side though. I guess I will keep using the eraser. It is a pain but it is better that having the glue there.

Thanks Sandy

how about talcum powder on that edge. it will keep the glue from sticking to just where you put the powder.

That is a good idea. I will try that.

Thanks Sandy

I think I would contact the manufacturer of the equipment and ask them about it. Also, ask the store manager of the place where you purchased it if they had other complaints?
I know this is being posted very late in the day but I just found this forum....LOL Hopefully you have solved your problem by now.

I've heard this particular model is troublesome. It apparently gets gunked up repeatedly and causes problems. Someone mentioned the newer model, like 510? works better. I don't have one but have wanted to try one. I think I read the review on Joann Fabric's website - if you look up the product it will show user comments.

I recently bought a 500 model. I have only used it once to test it out, but it worked fine. Maybe the cartridge was bad and thus the reason for the glue residue? I hope it isn't a problem with model. I purchased mine at JoAnn's for $39.00 on clearance. It also came with 2 adhesives - one permanent and one removeable, a cutter and a glue eraser. I priced them out at other stores and on the web and this was a great deal with all the extras. I checked and they didn't seem to be discontinuing this model, just this specially packaged one. I will be taking it on my crop weekend in April, so if I have any problems, I will be sure and post.

I just bought the small one today, and noticed that even it has a warranty of one year. I saw it on the little insert that comes with the product (not sure if they all do) but it said that if something is defective they will replace it. I thought that was pretty impressive considering I only paid $10 (then half off) for it.

I only have the little one....the 150 and haven't had problems with it.
