Does your Tecre button maker machine look like this one pictured below? Don’t panic! This is a typical machine jam, and is most often caused by either loading too many parts or using too thick of paper material in the button machine. When this happens the button maker locks up, and you would be unable to separate the upper and lower die.To help you alleviate this issue, follow the steps outlined below as “DO”. We also have gathered some ideas of things you should not try when resolving a button machine jam.

Thank you so much for the help I was getting very frustrated with the machine and myself. But you solved it all and thank you again.
Glad it worked for you!
Great help! Thanks so much!
but I have 1″ button maker and the upper die is larger than the bottom, no real good lip to hit. how do you unstick a 1″ button maker.
Hello! Is this a Tecre Button Maker? If it is, we relieve jams following these same steps outlined above. Please feel free to call in to the office so we can help you troubleshoot! If a button maker would need to be returned for us to evaluate, we can help you with that also!
thanks for the help!
just saved the day
We love to hear it!
Thanks, that totally worked. Now, however, every time I use it it jams? What can I do to resolve this?
Hmmm, are you sure there is nothing still left in that upper die? (Sometimes there can be multiple shells, mylar, etc.) If the problem persists, please call Tecre at (920)922-9168 for service assistance! Thank you!
