Crocodile Industries Hot Foil Press

I just started to set up some hot foil presses made by the now defunct, Crocodile Industries. Unfortunately I don’t have a manual. I’ve poked around online, but haven’t had any luck.
I have it plugged in and connected to the air compressor. I was hoping that I could also use it with the heat off to emboss. I *think* I did all the start up steps correctly, but the press won’t come down when I hit the button. Could the heat have something to do with the press mechanism? Warm up some hydraulic fluid or something??
