is 300W hot air gun good for phone repair?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hello everyone,

 

iam trying to start a phone repair business, and iam wondering if a 300W - 300 degrees hot air gun is good for phone screen replacement ? i mean to heat the glue around the phone screen to be able to remove it.

 

any and all opinions are more than appreciated.

 

thank you all :)

Sure.

thing is when i was researching i found out that the best temperature for phone repair is between 80 to 100 degrees. but i found an excellent deal for a 300W fixed hot air gun and was wondering.

Get a heat gun like mine, it's 1300 watts I use it to completely strip pcb's. That will loosen adhesive in a jiffy

Don't call a fix 300w heatgun professional. Call it hobby tool and i hope it is not one of the cheap china ones.

The benefit of the sand bag is that it is cheap and relative safe to use. The downside is it need more time.

Back to the question 300w is low. It will need some seconds to heat up before you can use it but otherwise you can get the work done with it. Using a temperature controlled high wattage heat gun is more fun (check that the circuit can handle the load or enjoy flickering ceiling lights).

What would be overkill for screen replacement is a hot air soldering station only used for screen replacements.

If your adamant about using a heat gun i highly suggest your carefull with it as you can blow the battery up covering your self in battery acid or you could burn the screen.

wow , really ? but if i use the heat gun on the screen for a short period of time since it's powerful, i should be safe, right ?

you need to be following the edges of the screen around the bezel using a tool to wedge under the glass slowly lifting it be careful with that process and if the screens cracked you'll need to replace the glass also as it will just shatter during removal depending how badly damaged it is, Holding the heat gun on it too long will either burn the screen or blow the battery up, this is why i suggest an hairdryer if your new to this

but a hair dryer outputs nearly the same heat as a 300W heat gun , by the way since you work in phone repair, can you suggest me all the tools you can possibly think of to start a phone/tablet repair service please? try to list as much as you can :)  many thanks
