Topic: Problems with Master Appliance 751b (4 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I turned on my Master Appliance 751b heatgun today and nothing seemed
to happen. Thinking the outlet might be bad, I tested my cooling fan,
plugged into the other outlet, and it had power, so I switched the
751b to that outlet. Still nothing. Then I noticed a burning smell;
the outlet of the heatgun was warm, so apparently the heat element was
working, but the fan was not.
Any suggestions as to what might be wrong, and what it might take to fix it?
Thanks,
Brian

This is a case where I probably could trouble shoot it, fixed my wife's blow
dryer twice over the span of a few years. (Third time she dropped it in the
toilet while on and I didn't try to fix it that time:-) But if you don't
know enough about electricity, motors and or electronics to trouble shoot a
fan simply using a meter highly advisable not to attempt it.
No offense meant. Electricity can be your friend, but it'll bite you if you
don't know what you're doing. Last really good buzz I got was (foolishly)
messing with a 220v baseboard heater WITHOUT first killing the breaker. I
got lit up right proper! Hell I knew better but was in a rush and got lazy.
Never be in a rush working with electricity!

There is always emergency repair procedure number one.    Hit it
vigorously against something hard a few times and try it again.
Something may be stuck in the fan (chaf?).  Maybe blow some air
through it backwards.   If that doesn't work you will probably need to
disasemble it.

Also note that the Masters Appliance heat guns stand out from the rest  
of the field because you can buy replacement parts.
