This laminator uses a similar heating element to a convection toaster. Because of this, moisture and/or dust can come in contact wit the heating element. When the laminator reaches a high enough temperature, a small amount of smoke may be produced. This is not something to be alarmed about and any smoke produced should dissipate within a minute. If smoking persists past a minute, shut the laminator off, unplug the unit and refer to the troubleshooting section located in the product manual.
