Введение

Is your hair dryer only blowing cold air? You most likely need a new heating element. Use this guide if you are looking to remove and replace a heating element for any standard electric hair dryer. You will save money and learn more about your handheld dryer. You will need a screwdriver (most likely Phillips head) , a desoldering wick, and a soldering iron. For information about soldering/desoldering, please review this guide as it does require specific skills. As always, please solder in a well ventilated area. If your hair dryer is sensitive, be sure sure to work with electrostatic discharge (ESD) -safe tools in an ESD-safe environment.
