Master mechanic glue gun 207 stopped working

Master Mechanic glue gun model 207 stopped working. Stick will no longer feed into the gun. Is there a thermal overload on the gun and could it have just shut down? Gun was completely cooled and then reheated with no improvement. How do you clean out the gun?

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

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. :)

All the windows stopped working at same time


Hi Vernita,

All the windows are controlled through drivers side master switch, when all windows stop working at the same time the problem is usually a problem with a bad power feed or ground wire.

The harness in the left door where it goes from the door to the B piller is a common area for wires to break due to the flexing/pinching of the harness as the door is opened and closed.

Check out this guys video it could be the same problem you are having:


If you don't find broken wires here, then you will need to test the powers and grounds at the master switch.

Good luck,

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.

Bought a glue gun to re cover my lamp. Unfortunatley there was no Instructions


Pretty basic to use. Insert glue stick from the rear, push it as far as it will go without forcing it, if there is room put another one behind it. turn on gun and wait til it gets hot. stand it on something that will not get damaged from the glue, a piece of cardboard for example, you should see glue start to drip through the tip. now press trigger (gently at first until glue is really hot) and glue will flow, the longer the gun is on the glue will be easier to get flowing. release trigger and glue will stop, (although a little will still come out) When there is room always place a glue stick behind one already in to help the continuous flow of glue. That's pretty much it really.

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.

I bought a Surebonder Fine Tip Hot Glue gun (small, for crafting) about less than 2 months back. It was fine at first until it stopped squirting melted glue and i had to manually push the glue stick from...


My guess is that you left the gun plugged in too long for the amount of glue that you were using. If you are using it for a good squirt every minute or so, you can leave it plugged in, but if your leave it plugged in too long while using too little, then the heat works it's way back up toward the back of the glue stick. First thing that happens is the glue-advancing trigger stops working because the advancing mechanism can't push against the softened glue stick. Leave it run even longer and it melts further back. Then when you turn it off it cools, but the melted glue is now in places it shouldn't be. If you take it apart you might be able to scrape and pry all of the once-melted glue out of it, then you would be back in business. Good luck!

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

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.

I have a rubbermaid glue-gun. I'd like to know how to insert a new glue stick. I tried and it doesn't seem to 'click-in' properly.


im not sure what model rubbermaid glue gun you have, for most there is a hole in the back and you just slide the glue stick in
