When you remove old carpet from a room, you will most likely be left with remnants of glued-down backing on the floor. Getting the tile back to it's original smooth appearance can be a tedious task. You will need to make sure that you have a lot of patience and a lot of elbow grease. Start removing the glue by scraping the tile with a heavy-duty wallpaper scraper or a long-handled scraper. Do a quick sweep of the floor. Plug in your heat gun. Once it is heated up, you will want to place it at a forty-five degree angle to the floor and direct the heat on the remaining carpet backing. The carpet backing will loosen considerably as the glue begins to dissolve. The carpet backing will loosen considerably as the glue begins to dissolve. Use the wallpaper scraper to remove the loosened backing. Work in small sections. Once you have removed the carpet backing from the tile, wash the area with warm water and soap to ensure all of the glue and backing are removed. Continue until the entire tile floor is free of carpet backing.

My heat gun only blows cool air--it is approx 18 yrs old--is it dead? frostb@portlandschools.org Thanks, Barb :0)


Heating element is probably burnt out. Easy to replace. Contact www.ereplacementparts.com. They run about $56 plus shipping. Might be better off to buy a new unit...that's what I did but mine was VERY used...

I have a brand new makita hg5002k heat gun,i use it to dry the ink on the t-shirts that i print,after 1 hour of continous usage,i shut it off to switch designs in my printing machine,no more than 5 minutes...


do you make sure to cool it down after use before switching off.

if switched off imediately after using on hot, the heat from the elements will keep increasing , causing short life of heating element and maybe the gun has a thermal trip that needs to cool down before it will switch back on. This sounds like what is happening with your machine.

shutdown instructions are in the users manual.

hope this helps

CAN i USE THE HEAT GUN TO WELD VYNAL TOGETHER


You need the proper type of heat gun and the proper type of filler. It is mainly used for thicknesses over 1/4". The vinyl on a lounge would melt away from the ambient heat created by the gun.

Not hot enough


being a digital heat gun i would say that the onboard circuitry is only allowing it to heat up to a lower temperature , for what it would cost to fix its probably cheaper to buy another one but i would stay away from anything digital and try and buy a wagner or bosche if you can but non digital

Heat Guns Safety tips


Although safer than using a naked-flame blowlamp, care is still required when using a heat gun. Specific point are: * Because of the power of these tools (up to 2000W), when an extension lead is necessary, only use a lead rated at 10 amp or greater and always completely unwind the lead. * Never obstruct or cover the air inlet grills. If the air flow is reduced the heat gun will overheat and possible catch fire. * Never operate the heat gun with the outlet nozzle hard up against a surface, this will reduce the air and can have the same effect as obstructing the air inlet grills, * Do not use a heat gun near inflammable materials. * Always switch the tool off before putting it down on any surface. * Allow the tool to cool before storing it. * Do not place the nozzle next to anything whilst it is hot. * Never touch the hot metal nozzle with clothing or skin. * Do not use for stripping lead-based paints. * Do not allow any paint to stick to the nozzle - and if some paint does stick, allow the gun to cool down and remove the paint. * Do not look down the nozzle while the gun is turned on. * Do not insert anything down the nozzle with the gun.

Heat Guns Features


As such a simple tool, there are not many differences between one model of heat gun and another - but there are some features which are important. * Wattage - commonly from 1000W to 2000W (a measure of the power of the gun). Providing that there are heat and/or airflow controls, the higher the wattage, the better. * Main control switch - usually mounted on the front of the pistol grip, and normally a 'dead man' switch so that power is switched off when the finger pressure is removed - an ideal safety feature as the heat gun stops if it is accidentally dropped. * Temperature setting - at least 500°C is needed for stripping paint - the lower the bottom end of the range the more useful. A choice of controls make the tool more useful. * Airflow setting - having variable or more than one speed makes the tool more versatile. * Thermal cut out - this will switch off the tool if it becomes overheated. If this occurs, it indicates a fault in the tool or method of use - for safety, the fault must be identified and corrected before the heat gun is again used. * Flex length - lengths of 2.5 to 3 m are normally fitted, this means that when using an extension lead, the tool can be used at the full reach without having the socket hanging in mid air. * Hanging hook - useful for storing the tool. * Surface stand - this enables the heat gun to be safety 'rested' during pauses in the work and after uses. It also allows the gun to be used 'hands-free' when two hands are required on the work piece (such as when bending a plastic pipe). * Nozzles - most heat guns have a range of nozzles that can be fitted for specific uses, generally these need to be purchased separately. The main types of nozzles are: 1. Reducer nozzle - when you want to concentrate the heat onto a specific area. 2. Reflector nozzle - wraps round a plastic or copper pipe to spread the heat around the pipe surface. 3. Flat nozzle - for spreading the hot air over a wider narrower area. 4. Glass protector nozzle - for use when stripping paint on a window to keep the direct heat off the glass.

Heat Guns Troubleshooting


Uses for the heat gun include: * drying paint or varnish - 30 to 130 °C - care has to be taken as dust particles may be blown onto the paint/varnish. * drying out damp wood (before filling or painting) - around 100 to 200°C. * softening adhesive (such as when applying worktop edge trim or lifting floor tiles) - 300 to 400°C. * bending plastic pipes - 200 to 300°C. * heat-shrinking plastic film - 200 to 300°C. * welding some plastics - 330 to 400°C.
