It takes a couple of minutes for the gun to heat up. When you first plug it in, touch the metal nozzle with your hand. It should become obviously hot within 15 seconds and too hot to touch within a minute . After it fully heats up (a couple of minutes), squeezing the trigger should advance the glue stick and push molten glue out of the nozzle. However, there is often an initial resistance to the trigger and you may have to squeeze a bit hard to get it started. If there is a problem with the trigger mechanism, you can also advance the glue by pushing directly on the back end of the glue stick with your thumb. Good luck.

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.

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

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 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

Can't get glue stick into gun


Hello,
Plug it into wall outlet and let it become hot (without plugin any glue into ) about an hour..
When it gets hotter the molded glue in the back channel/barrel of the gun will be melted and back side will be freed to accept a new glue stick.
My regards

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.

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.
