I want to use hair drier without the heater element
I have an old hair drier which works but I want to use it as a blower for a small forge I have made can you tell me how to disconnect the heater element please
Thanks but my drier dose not have a switch to turn off the heater can I just unsolder the wires to the heater and join them together will this work if not I will open the drier and take a photo of the inside I have the page about replacing the element which shows the wires to unsolder if this helps
Yes, unsoldering the wires to the heater will work as well. Just make sure that you cover any uninsulated wires and contacts with some electrical tape etc.
No, it will not, because heating element provide resistance to internal motor. If you remove heating element you need to add another resistance (ex. resistor) to block the voltage and pass it to motor.
