Are you in the UK? The fuse in the plug might need replacing. I had the same problem with glue guns. It's not worth buying an expansive one. The cheap ones might take a bit longer to heat up but the last just as long if not longer. I can never tell when the element will go.

Tool shop glue gun


that's just an unfortunate side effect of gravity. it happens to all glue guns. as the element heats the glue it turn into a liquid and oozes out of the nozzle. eventually it would stop when once all the glue in contact with the element has oozed out.
check this out.

Tip

Keeping glue from getting stringy


Whenever I use a hot glue gun I had been getting that stringy glue sticky mess when I get to the end of my gluing. I have been experimenting with different methods for stopping this mess from happening.

The method that I have found to work best takes a bit of retraining. When you are done gluing instead of instinctively picking up with glue gun creating that stringy mess, you lift the tip up a little way away from the project and make a few small circles. Then the glue detaches from the gun and you are free from the mess and able to continue with your project without having to stop and clean up every time you pick up the glue gun.

How to use wire stand on glue gun


the wire stand is there to stop the glue from melting and dripping out the end when you aren't using it. simply fold the wire stand out so that the gun can rest at a 45 degree angle. i would still advise you to set the gun on the wire stand on a paper towel or something, because it may still drip a little.

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

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

Master mechanic glue gun 207 stopped working


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. :)
