I have sent a ticket but I want to elaborate here since support can only be reached via leaving a message.
When I first received my Glowforge I would have to turn the off/on button a few times before it would actually turn on. I did not think much about that since it did turn on and I was able to make my first cut for the Good Measure I then created some miniature cutting boards (the same day) then left it alone for a few days until I received my pre-cut plexiglass to create my window vent.
A couple days later I received my plexiglass and was able to make my window vent today. I just needed to make a simple straight line cut and a 4 inch hole on the .50" plexiglass. I am not sure if this happened with my good measure cuts or the miniature cutting boards as I did not need the cuts to be precise on the material as I did for these cuts but they were off by about a 1/2". I had to cut a single cut multiple times just to even get close to the measurements I needed.
On my last cut my machine completely shut down and the app showed an “Interlock Open” alert. I then started to research what that meant from the forums on this site and saw that the staple pin was properly in place so that was not the issue but the alert still remained.
After that I attempted to test cut but upon turning on the machine, this time, only by unplugging and plugging the power supply on the back of the machine would turn it on. Once turned on it would start to power up and then completely cut off. I tried this several times and now it will not come on at all. Now If I attempt to turn on the machine I only hear a faint click.
I have checked the power that is plugged in directly to my wall with a 3 prong adapter. I did read before I got the machine that it should only be plugged into the wall so I did not add it to my surge protector that is connected to my other plug in that outlet. The outlet only has my cricut maker, cricut joy and a small desk fan plugged in which is not turned on most of the time. Only when in use and I was only using the desktop fan when the laser printer was in use.
-I checked the outlet to make sure that it was not being overloaded by removing the other items that were on the surge protector in the adjoining plug in that outlet.
-All other items in use in that outlet were still in working order.
-I checked the actual plug and the 3 prong adapter with other appliances , in the same plug I used for the Glowforge, and they worked fine.
-there is adequate power going to that plug as it is on a 20W amp.
Is there any other checks I need to do? This is very disheartening as I got the PRO model thinking I was getting the best and the machine did not even last a week or a decent amount of cuts. I am losing money while this sits in my studio room not working not to speak of all the other items I purchased that I needed to use with this machine. Very costly for it not to be working. In my line of business as with most time is money.
I will need to cancel my Premium subscription, for now, as I am unable to use this machine. Even more money I spent with the anticipation of getting right to business with my GF machine.
Thank you and I await your swift response!
