Sorry you had trouble with it, glad you got it back together OK.
A hair dryer will get hotter than most people realize. A heat gun is just a hair dryer with extra or beefier heating elements, and usually a lower speed fan.
That's a good question, but my first step is to replace the fuse. It's hard to troubleshoot without power. And amazingly enough, I don't mind sacrificing a sacrificial part.I think you must have a Mk. II. Mine has the classic metal clip fuse holder, and the 5x20mm glass fuse.
