    What goes wrong with such guns?
    Probably overheated and then the resistor block inside goes skew and blocks
    the melt flow path. While molten but switched off , a rod through the nozzle
    hits something solid , probably ceramic of a wire-wound. When powered,
    pushing a hot-melt rod in the entry hole, little exudes from the nozzle,
    requiring greater force than usual, outer housing seems to have expanded a
    bit as well.
    When I get a new one , this one will have a PM, but in the meantime , if
    anyone has been inside one before.

    Fixing a Jubilee clip, while hot, around the nose seems to have fixed it,
    presumably the heater block realigned itself, but time for a new one anyway.
