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. :)

SOURCE: how do i insert glue stick in to my emhardt

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.

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.

Hi - just bought a Ad Tech Hybrid Cordless glue gun and Ad Tech glue sticks but the sticks are too large to fit - is there a way to resize the sticks?


Ad tech makes a few different size guns. you need to make sure that you are using MINI GLUE STICKS. they should be 0.28 inch in diameter. there is no good way to resize the larger sticks, just buy the mini ones instead

How do you Remove empty glue gun cartridge from an Arrow Mt300?


With an Arrow Mt300, you leave the glue stick in the gun and use a second glue stick to push the glue out. You do not need to remove any cartridges. See http://www.arrowfastener.com/sites/default/files/MT300_manual.pdf for more info.

Arrow TR 550 heats up fine but glue stick won't feed by the trigger. If I push the stick with my hand glue does come out, but the trigger seems to "slip" on the glue stick. Any ideas?


The trigger probably really is slipping on the glue stick. If you've changed the type or size of glue recently, try changing back to what you were using, or just something else. Maybe the glue stick is too small, or too slippery for the gun. If not that, then it's a mechanical problem. There are some screws on the side of the gun. With it unplugged and cool, take them out and open the case. It might be stuck together with some internal connections as well as the screws, but jamming a flathead screwdriver in them can usually wedge them apart. With the gun open, move the trigger and look for the parts that move with it in the area where the glue stick goes. If you can find something to attach to these parts to make them just a tiny bit longer, do that. The parts that grip the glue have probably worn down or just don't fit, and the fact that you can tell the trigger is slipping means that it's probably very close to grabbing, but not quite close enough. Any little extension to the grabbing parts should do, but be careful not to block the path of the glue.

Try cleaning the glue stick slot out with acetone (nail polish remover) and a paper towel, or cue tips if you have to get into a small area. that should help to break down any dried glue that may be blocking a new stick from feeding in, or may be blocking the heating element
