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: 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.

put a towel over the glue and iron over the towl. the glue will melt and the towel will soak it up. That works for other things like crayons also.

SOURCE: Glue Gun Troubleshooting

1. Insert your wax stick into a standard sized glue gun. The fit may be tight. The more wax you use, the smoother the fit. 2. Use a second wax stick in the gun to help advance the first, if needed. 3. Heat the gun up to temperature. 4. Do a few test pulls on the gun to get a feel for the quantity of wax you would like to use with your seal. (Two good pulls of the trigger will produce a full seal for the larger sealing coins.) 5. Wait for 10-15 seconds, then press your seal firmly into the wax before it hardens. 6. Lift the seal slowly off the wax. If it comes away and the wax is still quite soft, wait a little longer before pressing the seal down.

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.

I need to glue twopieces of cardboard in a v shape to use for pleating material which then has to go into a steamer so the cardboard must stay together


You can use many different types of hot glue guns and sticks to create a "Fiber Tear" meaning the cardboard will rip before the glue bond fails. Gluegun.com has a great selection of craft & industrial guns as well as glue sticks.

How does a glue gun work?


A hot glue gun is a very useful tool for joining modelling materials and even more substantial materials can be fixed together with it. 'Sticks' of solid glue are pushed into the back of the gun, the trigger is pressed pushing the glue stick forward and molten glue comes out of the nozzle. The glue is manufactured from thermoplastics.

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

I have a new Surebonder rechargeable glue gun. I was gluing a large pc. and rushed to get another stick and it would not feed by pulling the trigger, There was one glue stick (partial) still in gun, but...


it sound like the charge ran down, recharable glue guns are not typically recomended for large project becuase heating elements run down batteries very quickly. to get the stick out of your gun, you will need to fully charge it and then after that turn it on and when its warm pull the trigger and the glue should once again come out, For large project I would recommend you purchase a wired (plug in the wall) type glue gun. Thanks for you question

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.

Master mechanic glue gun 207 stopped working


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
