Default Glue Gun Blew up

I dont know if this is the right place to put this. I was workin on hairbows and just put my glue gun down and i heard a POP!! I look over and a bright light came from the glue gun. It even turned off my computer. I was just wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else.

Wow! I wouldn't use that brand again!!! I've had a few from the same place and you get good ones and you get bad ones. How old was yours? I have a couple that won't work at my booth if I have my cash register plugged in...or it will work then quit working a little after I plug it in. Drives me crazy!!! Especially when I'm doing orders on the spot!

I for sure would not use it again!! Why take the risk? Return it if you can as defective or seal it up and dispose of it. Also do not plug things into the same outlet with your computer until you are sure it was the gun itself.

I've never had a glue gun do that, but I have had a hair dryer pop like that. I got rid of it.

I wouldn't use it at all after that! I would get rid of it and get a new one. I've never had one pop or blow up, but deff wouldn't use it again...it can even blow out your computer if it blew out the gun if they are in the same outlet (atleast that's what I've been told)

The same thing happened to me a week or so ago. Sparks actually flew out of the nozzle! Scared the you know what out of me, lol! My husband said it was because I left it plugged in too long.

I had that happen too, it blew the breaker. I wasn't in the room when it happened so i really didn't know what had happened, so i flipped the breaker and it happened again about 3 minutes later, very loud pop and sparks. I have about 5 so I just threw that one away. I def. wouldn't use it again, could start a fire or hurt you.
