1The pressure may be too low.Apply the product again using increased pressure; adjust the stop.
2The carrier material is too thick or consists of too many layers.With Rivets, select the smaller Back Part. With Rivets and Jeans Buttons a hole can be pre-punched.
3The dies/spare parts for the upper die are defective or have been wrongly inserted.Check the dies and if necessary, replace or repair them.
4The product has been applied using the wrong dies. Check to make sure that the right dies are being used for the product.
5The dies have not been inserted correctly.Make sure that the products are placed exactly in the right position on the dies. By turning the fly press handle slowly, it is possible to see if the upper and lower parts of the tool meet exactly.
6The fly press and dies do not fit together.Make sure that the fly press and the upper die have the same thread size (M6 or M8).
7The upper die cannot be fitted.Check the fastening screw on the upper die; it may have been screwed too tightly.
8The die/spare part may be damaged.Check the dies; if they are faulty use a new die or spare part.
9The screw on the upper die has broken off.Carefully try to loosen the screw using pliers. Oil from time to time; it may be necessary to center-drill the die.
10The pressure may be too high.Apply the product again using slightly less pressure; adjust the stop.
11The die damages the crystal.Check the dies and if necessary replace the upper die or the spare parts.
12The vacuum hose is blocked or damaged.Check and if necessary change the vacuum hose.
13The vacuum hole in the upper die (Rivet) is blocked.Clean the vacuum hole and if necessary change the spare part.
