Electric cooker instead of heat gun

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone, so I want to change my screen on huawei p20 lite because it has break, but I don't have the heat gun to remove back. Do you think if I would hold it in front of electric cooker it would help? (I ve seen lot of people used heat gun but some didn't used anything and went straight up to removing back, so I am a bit confused if I need it at all). Thanks for any advices and tips.

Use a hair dryer from some distance ... basically just enough to have warm air blow on the back.

 

Dunno what kind of cooker you have ... if it's induction plate than the induction part could damage chips inside the phone if the phone is too close to it ... it heats metal bits inside while the other bits stay cool, things heat unevenly, chips can pop because of this and so on...

 

May be possible to boil some water and then use the heat rising from the water ... but then you'd probably trip the humidity sensors inside the phone.

A heat gun is fairly cheap, you don't need anything fancy. Not sure if an electric cooker would work at all tbh


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

You'll burn your fingers long before the adheisive is hot enough to lift off.


Ask your mom or find a friend who has a gf and ask to borrow her hairdryer, when asked why just say "You know nothing of the tech community", you'd be surprised how often I use my girlfriends hairdryer to get adhesive loosened (about once a week lol)
