SOURCE: Glue Gun Question

Gather the materials needed and place them on a flat surface near an electrical outlet. Examine the glue gun. Locate the metal rest. This is usually attached to the barrel of the gun and is shaped like a "W." Make sure it folds out and locks into place. Locate the trigger. This is just behind the barrel on the underneath side of the gun. It should be a solid piece of plastic shaped like a slice of pie. Just above the trigger, is the barrel loader. This is where the glue sticks go into the gun. Inside the barrel loader there is a smaller round piece of plastic. This is what actually pushes the glue stick through the barrel. Pull the trigger and watch the piece of plastic move with it. Pick up the electrical cord and examine it. Make sure the prongs are secure and not bent. Make sure the cord has no breaks in the outer lining and there are no frays at the base of the gun where the cord attaches. Plug the glue gun into the electrical outlet. Allow the gun to heat at least 15 minutes so it reaches operating temperature. When the gun has heated at least 15 minutes, insert a glue stick as far as it will go without forcing it. Now pull the trigger until a small drop of hot glue forms on the tip of the gun. Practice gluing on the paper plate. Pull the trigger until a ball of glue forms on the plate. Release the trigger and quickly press the tip of the gun down onto the surface of the plate and pull it to the side. This will break the glue and stop it from stringing out when you pull it away. Continue practicing until you get the right amount of glue you want for the object you imagine using. When you pull the gun away, there may be a small string but this will break off easily. When you have the perfect amount of glue and only a tiny string forming when you pull away, you are ready for your project.

SOURCE: I can' get the glue stick out of the glue gun

No need for concern. Just leave it there and then the next time you use it push a new one in as needed.
I haven't met a glue gun yet where you can take out the last remnants of glue stick.
If you prefer to remove it try this:
take a paper clip and straighten it (any thin,metal object will work) Heat the glue gun,unplug it,and then heat the end of the paper clip with a lighter/candle.
Insert it into the end that you load from,sticking it into the glue stick. Wait a short time and then pull the paper clip out. The glue stick should come out with it.
I find it easier to leave the glue stick in as I said,but it's your choice.

SOURCE: master mechanic glue gun 207 stopped working

Hello,

There is a glue build up inside. Most likely in the feeding mechanism, try to heat it up, the unplug, and use like a paper rolled up to try to remove some of the glue. :)

Is there a seal between the nozzle and the tip? I have glue leaking out everywhere??


No, no seal. The heating element is just a heated tube with the nozzle simply threaded into its end. The heating element in your glue gun may be cracked. Or... possibly... you (or someone in your household) got it hot and laid it down and left it that way for a LONG time, and the melted glue backed up inside the heating element. A glue gun should never be laid on its side while hot but idle, especially for long periods of time.

Need the instruction manual for a Stanley GR100 glue gun


I do not believe there is a manual. there are instructions on the package. Insert the glue stick and turn on the gun. When the glue melts and the trigger moves glue will come out the front tip. This model has 2 temperatures so if it delivers too fast or runny you can lower the temperature. You pull the trigger to push the glue stick into the heating element to melt the glue. It is pretty straight forward. As the glue stick is consumed you stick in another glue stick. I suggest testing on something before using on your project. Do be careful of the hot end. It will definitely burn you if you touch it and the glue coming out is nearly as hot as the metal.

How to use glue gun


PLug it in and if there is a on/off swith turn it on. The gun's heating element will get hot. When it is hot enough to melt the glue stick you have put inside through the hole (that is glue stick sized and on your end) then the trigger will push the glue stcik into the hot metal melting and coming out the end so you can deliver it where you want to glue something. Beware of the heat. You absolutely can burn yourself touching the hot parts of the glue gun. Think how you would not touch the hot part of a steam iron... same problem.) That's pretty much it. Pull the trigger to push the glue stick though and add more sticks as you need them. And beware of the very hot nature of hte tool.

My glue gun doesn't heat up the glue stick.


Is the light on? The problem may be electrical, you can try plugging it into a different outlet. Try one that you are sure is working (ie unplug something that is already working and try the glue gun there). If it is getting power, there must be a problem with the interior heating coil, in which case you will have to unscrew the casing and replace some parts

Remove shutoff feature


You shouldn't remove the auto shut off feature, it is a safety mechanism, and it will increase the life of the gun. It is also very convenient because you won't put the gun down and come back to find it in a pile of melted or hardened glue

How do i insert glue stick in to my emhardt electric glue gun


Insert the glue stick into the back of the gun. After doing this plug in the gun and allow it to heat up. When the gun reaches the correct heat level you will be able to pull the trigger of the gun which will pull the stick into the gun. This will only happen if the gun is hot enough.

DualMelt stanley glue gun


For polyesters, rayons, nylon - yes use the low heat setting. The high setting is so hot it can actually melt some synthetic materials. The difference in adhesion between the two settings is minimal. Use the low temperature glues sticks if the gun says there is a difference.

You can use it for this purpose, but it may not be a permanent solution depending on how much stress or load the fabric is seeing (being stretched) when using the furniture.

The best upholstery edges are usually stapled - where the edge or hem of the material is left longer than the area being covered. A picture would be helpful if you want to know the right way to make the edge.
