We help people repair plastic
From time to time, you may find yourself needing to replace the parts in your airless plastic welder. While proper startup and shutdown procedures, as well as careful use, will prevent elements from burning out or breaking prematurely, elements may still need to be replaced once in a while.
Make sure your welder is cool and disconnected from the power before you begin the repair.
This video shows how to replace the heater core for an airless plastic welder. These things rarely burn out. However, normally the ceramic will break if the airless welding element is dropped. This is part you need if your airless plastic welder isn't getting hot anymore.
We will be replacing the 6012C Ceramic Core Assembly that goes in the 6012 Element Assembly on the airless plastic welder.
Always wear proper safety gear while working!

Make sure your welder is cool before you begin. To replace a core in your 6012 airless welding element, start by unscrewing the welding tip. Remove the nut and barrel and then remove the tip adaptor and spacer. Remove the three screws in the base and slide off. Push upward on the power cord below the handle to gain access to the connector assembly. Remove the ground spring from the ground wire. Push down on the tab located on the side of the heating core's connector, remove, and snap the new core in place.
Tightly reattach the ground spring, and pull gently on the power cord to seat the connector assembly back into the handle. Screw the base of the welder back in place. Slide the spacer and adaptor back in place over the new core. Cover with the barrel and nut before screwing the welding tip back in.
