Hair dryer repair manual
Today it is rare that any woman can do without a hair dryer. But unfortunately, to find a good hair dryer now. a very difficult task, they often fail. Fortunately, thanks to its primitive design, the repair of the hair dryer with their own hands is not particularly difficult, even at home.
Almost all hair dryers have a similar design. It consists of a body in which the other parts are located. the switch, the motor, combined with the impeller and the heater. Power enters the device through the mains cord, then it goes to the switch, which has several working positions. From it the voltage goes to the motor and the heating element.
As the motors, used in hair dryers. low-voltage (designed for voltages from 12 to 36 V), DC, and in our network we have 220-250 V AC, the current supplied to the motor, passes through a special spiral located in the heating element. After the passage of the spiral, the voltage is reduced to the required voltage, but the current remains alternating, so it goes to the diode bridge, where it is rectified and only then comes to the motor, forcing it to rotate the impeller.
Heating element is a nichrome wire, twisted into a spiral and fixed to a frame of heat-resistant material. There can be several such spirals in the heating element. This is necessary in order to be able to change the temperature of the air flow, switching modes.
This dryer is also designed with two degrees of thermal protection. The first is implemented as a thermostat, standing in the gap of the supply wire and located at the outlet of the heater. It opens the circuit when reaching a certain temperature, turning off the device. After cooling it closes the circuit, restoring the performance of the device. If the thermostat for some reason did not work, and the temperature continues to rise, the second degree is activated in the form of standing in the gap circuit thermal fuse, which burns out, and the device turns off. Unlike the thermostat, the fuse is a disposable part and must be replaced when triggered.
On this drawing you can see where the various parts are located:
The principle of operation of the hair dryer is simple as hell: the air through the intake holes is sucked in by the impeller and runs through the heating element, where its temperature increases to the level set by the selected operating mode. Then the flow of hot air passes through the nozzle, and falls on your hair.
But to fully understand the principle of operation, one drawing is not enough. In addition to it, we will need a schematic diagram of the hair dryer
In the future, when considering malfunctions, we will refer exactly to it.
Thanks to a simple design and the fact that it appeared quite a long time ago (in the 1950s), over the years of operation has accumulated a huge number of statistics on the failure, and all the possible problems of the hair dryer is now well known. You don’t have to do a lot of diagnostics and repairs, all together will take you maximum 1 hour.
For simplicity and convenience, let’s make a list of faults / troubleshooting methods, which we will refer to during diagnostics. In brackets is the designation of the elements in the circuit diagram. If there is nothing after #xAB;/#xBB; then you need to replace the defective part with a working one.
Breakage or short circuit in a power cord / replace a cord, or having cut out a problem site, connect a wire and well isolate it.
Capacitor (C1) or resistor (R1) breakdown /.
Faulty thermostat (F2) or fuse (F1) /.
Failure of the cold air button (SB1) / replace it with a working one. When replacing, make sure that this button is normally closed and open. If you don’t need it, you can disconnect the wires from it and connect them together.
Rectifier diode breakdown (VD1. VD4) /.
Faulty smoothing capacitors (C2, C3) /.
Hair wrapped and wedged on motor shaft / cut hair off with office knife or scalpel. Be careful not to damage the impeller.
The grease on the motor bearings has dried out / flush them out with solvent in a syringe with a needle, and lubricate the bearings with liquid silicone grease.
Open circuit in nichrome coils (H1. H3) / if the breakage is not visually noticeable, disassemble and carefully scrape with a knife the terminals through which it connects to the wires and put them back together. If it does not help or the breakage is visible to the naked eye. replace the coil with one of similar resistance.
Shorted coils (H1. H3) with each other / if the frame of the heater is intact, change the coils for a new one, if you find a damaged frame and you do not have the same to replace. postpone the repair until better times or throw out the hair dryer.
Heating element is badly soiled / disconnect it from the cables and soak it in a detergent solution. After 2 hours, scrub with a toothbrush, rinse under running water and reattach. Do not forget to dry it thoroughly before installing it in your hair dryer.
Fan impeller is destroyed / replace with a suitable impeller. Glue or solder won’t help here because you can’t align the impeller well and it will break quickly because of the vibrations.
Note that all items in the list are in order of diagnosis.
In order not to puzzle over how to disassemble the hair dryer, you need to prepare for it in advance. The manufacturers are trying to complicate the disassembly of their products, using screws with non-standard (fork, star, triangle) notches and hiding them under stickers and plugs. Before you start disassembly make sure that you have a screwdriver with interchangeable bits and that the kit contains the bits you need.
Before unscrewing the screws, remove all plugs and stickers from the body. Once you have unscrewed all the screws, you can try to gently separate the halves of the case, using a plastic card (you can use any object that is convenient for you. It is important that it be plastic. Metal can damage disconnectable parts). If the halves do not yield, make sure that you have not missed any screws that are well hidden. If you are sure that there are no countersunk screws, use a little more force to release the latches that hold the case.
Now let’s look at the repair steps you will need to take. Again, make a list, but this time first the symptoms of the fault, followed by #xAB;/#xBB; the item numbers from the list of faults that need to be checked. Check the items in the order in which they are listed.
The hair dryer works when it is stationary, but as soon as you pick it up it starts malfunctioning / 1, 4, 11, 12.
When you plug in the network, the circuit breakers at the apartment inlet are triggered / 1, 2.
The fan is heating but it is not working, there is no airflow / 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
Only cold air is coming, other modes have no effect / 4, 5, 11, 12.
The impeller slowly spins, the airflow is weak and the hair dryer makes a lot of noise / 8, 9.
When working, it smells burned, but everything else is normal / 13.
Strong vibrations and noises are audible, but the airflow is not or is very weak / 14.
It also happens that the hair dryer when you plug it in does not show any signs of life. In this case we need to make a full diagnosis.
For this we need a multimeter, you can not do without it. Before starting the operation switch off the power supply and switch the multimeter to the diode check mode (in this mode a short circuit is detected and a buzzer sounds).
First check the power cord by testing each lead from the plug to the capacitor C1, then proceed to check elements C1 and R1. None of them should be shorted. Then check thermal fuse F1 and thermostat F2. They are normally short-circuited, open circuit indicates a fault. Next check the switch SW1. Switch it to the hottest air mode and wire the leads to each other. If there are no breaks and no contact loss, then there is nothing wrong with the switch. Also make sure that L1 and L2 are not open.
Move on to the rectifier diodes VD1. VD4 and diode VD5. They should only ring in one direction. If a diode current flows in both directions, or is open, it is faulty. After checking the smoothing capacitors C2 and C3 (their short circuit indicates their failure) you can start testing the motor M1, for that switch your multimeter to the resistance measurement mode. If there is a breakage or short circuit between the motor leads (the minimum resistance for such motors is 5 ohms). the motor is defective.
Now you can reassemble the coils H1. H3. When checking them, do not touch the spirals themselves with your feeler gauges, but the wires in the connecting terminals, otherwise you may not see the bad contact in the terminals themselves. If the resistances of the coils do not differ much from those in the schematic, you are OK. A lower resistance value indicates a short circuit between the coils and a higher resistance value indicates a bad contact in the terminals. An endless resistance indicates a breakage.
It remains only to check the SB1 button (it has to be shorted if it is operational) and the diagnostics may be considered over. Now you need to troubleshoot the found faults using the methods from the list of faults. After that you only need to reassemble the hair dryer by performing the disassembly steps in reverse order and that’s it, the repair is complete.
Test the hair dryer by plugging it in. Then look at the situation:. all the functions work fine, it means you have done everything right;. the hair dryer doesn’t work as it should or it does not turn on at all, look for the error and fix it after you have found it.
P. S.: The article was written to order, but we didn’t get along with the customer. He insisted that the article should meet all the requirements of search engines and give a good ranking. I insisted on the fact that the article should be useful for the readers. The customer gave us a lot of moronic keywords which turned the article into something the hell it was not.
In the end, the customer was told to fuck off, and the article you see before you now)
How the machine works
Any hair dryer has a motor with an impeller and a heater. The impeller sucks in air from one side of the hair dryer, then it blows on the heater and comes out already hot from the other side. The hair dryer also has a mode switch and elements to protect the heater from overheating.
impeller; 2. electric motor; 3. heater; 4. thermal protection; 5. mode switch; 6. power cord
In household hair dryers fan assembled on the collector DC motor, designed for a voltage of 12, 18, 24 or 36 volts (sometimes there are motors running on alternating voltage of 220 volts). A separate coil is used to power the electric motor. Constant voltage is obtained from a diode bridge mounted on the motor leads.
The hair dryer heater is a frame of noncombustible and non-conductive plates that has a nichrome coil wound around it. The coil is made up of several sections, depending on how many operating modes the hair dryer has.
The coil is wound on a heat-resistant frame
The hot heater must be permanently cooled by the passing airflow. If the coil overheats, it can burn out or catch fire. That is why the hair dryer is designed so that it shuts off automatically if it overheats. A thermostat is used for this. It is a pair of normally closed contacts on a bimetal plate. The thermostat is located on the heater closer to the outlet of the hair dryer and is constantly blown by hot air. If the air temperature exceeds the permissible temperature, the bimetal plate opens contacts and heating stops. After a few minutes the thermostat cools down and closes the circuit again.
Sometimes a thermal fuse is also used as additional protection. It is disposable and burns out when a certain temperature is exceeded, after which it must be replaced.
To get a better understanding of how the hair dryer works you can watch these two videos (see the first video from minute 6):
Most domestic hair dryers have a circuit similar to the one above. Let’s take a closer look at it. the heater is represented by three spirals: H1, H2 and H3. The H1 coil is used to power the motor, the H2, H3 are used only for heating. In this case the hair dryer has three modes of operation. In the upper position of SW1 the circuit is de-energized. In position 1, the hair dryer operates at minimum power: the power is supplied through the diode VD5, which cuts off one half-wave of alternating voltage, only one heating coil H2 is on (not at full power), the motor rotates at low speed. In position 2, the hair dryer operates at medium power: diode VD5 is shorted, the circuit receives both half-waves of alternating voltage, the coil H2 operates at full power, the motor rotates at nominal speed. In position 3 the hair dryer works at maximum available power as the H3 coil is connected. When the cool button is pressed, heating spirals H2, H3 are switched off and the motor continues to run. Diodes VD1-VD4 are half-wave rectifier. Inductance coils L1, L2 and capacitors C2, C3 reduce the level of interference that inevitably occurs when using a collector motor. F1, F2 are fuses and thermostat.
Typical inspection procedure
If the device is devoid of signs of life, works unstable, the inspection begins with the power circuit. The following is a schematic description of the repair of Rowenta hair dryers.
Attention! Described types of work require skills in handling electrical appliances. The authors disclaim responsibility for damage to health, property arising from attempts to follow these recommendations for repairing hair dryers.
Examination of the power wire begins with the socket. There lies a part of the problem: no voltage. the hair dryer does not work. If the voltage in the socket is present, inspection of the cord begins at the entrance to the housing, go in the direction of the plug. The work is carried out on the de-energized device. Visually search for breaks and irregularities. burns, insulation damage, fractures.
Then the case of the hair dryer is disassembled. Inside you have a chance to see the variants of electrical resistance:
The last item on the list characterizes the non-detachable connection, therefore, the case is difficult to test. Skilful hands, or rather, clever heads, the Ukrainian brothers on the mind advise to use an ordinary needle for repair of the hair dryer. Immediately catching the train of thought the next paragraph will skip, directly begin testing.
Repair of a hair dryer with your own hands begins with a wire-check. Chinese tester, light bulb, indicator will do. A needle is attached to one terminal, which is then poked into the power supply core in the area of the cap through the insulation to the copper. The second terminal feels the legs of the plug. The bell goes for both strands. than 1 piercing per core when repairing a hair dryer is not worth doing (some will try to look for the breakage location as well), because the nature of operation involves getting wet from wet hair.
Even a child can test a wire with a visually distinguishable junction in front of him. Having detected the damage, it is recommended to buy a new cord, equipped with a plug of non-disassembled design. The possibility of moisture brings limitations on the choice of insulation for the conductive parts used to repair the hair dryer.
Common cases: The first glance reveals the place of damage to the cord’s entry into the housing. Scorch marks, fouling, and black insulation indicate the location of the fault.
A vulnerable wiring point nestled in the junction with the body of the hair dryer. The mistress takes the delicate appliance by the cord, winds it from side to side, twists the cable on the handle. Cracked wire sparks, insulation warms, burns, copper melts. This is the mechanism by which copper wires are damaged.
Switch and Switch
When updating it is useful to short circuit the switch, check: will the hair dryer in response to an uncomplicated step change the behavior radically. There are three-position switches, each short-circuited position is checked separately. Remember, sketch the original layout of the wires before you begin to repair the hair dryer.
Checking speed, temperature switches uses similar circuitry.
The defective element detected in the course of the restoration of the hair dryer inspected. Remove carbon deposits with an emery board, sandpaper, or eraser. Contacts are wiped down with alcohol. Defective components are replaced with equivalents. The radical method. short-circuit the power button while searching for the right parts.
It is fairly common for a hair dryer to have a clogged air duct. The filter, if present, should be removed and thoroughly cleaned. Remove dust from the crevices with a soft brush.
Lack of rotation of the blades or low revolutions are often observed when hair is wrapped around the motor axis. The propeller should be carefully removed from the shaft, avoiding unnecessary force and distortion. After that, foreign objects are removed.
A hair dryer usually has more than one heating element. Visually all of them should look homogeneous. Be sure of this when repairing the hair dryer by opening the case. Any ruptures found are repaired by twisting the ends, soldering, and tinning. It is also possible to get thin copper tubes and crimp the ends of the broken spiral inside.
Defects of heating elements during repair can be observed visually. A careful inspection will tell you how to repair your hair dryer. Effective replacement coils with similar store-bought or homemade products from nichrome wire.
The electric motor of a hair dryer can be powered by both direct current and alternating current. If the diode bridge is burned out, the winding is damaged, normal operation is impaired. Terrible crackle and sparks when switching on indicate the fault of the motor.
Motor windings are soldered out when repairing a hairdryer from an electric circuit. At each wire find a pair that rings. Pins are connected in threes, no one should be hanging in the air. Replacing the winding when repairing a hairdryer is only done in the workshop. However, folk craftsmen can rewind as well as machine tools. Willing to try.
If the windings are serviceable, the brushes are inspected, the copper surface underneath is cleaned, and the tightness of the fit is evaluated.
The axis should turn freely. When repairing the hair dryer does not hurt to lubricate the rubbing surfaces, manually work up the problem areas.
Gethinax backing sometimes cracks, tearing the track. Tin the damaged area, lightly tin the solder.
Spoiled capacitors are slightly swollen. The top edge of the cylinder contains shallow slots, when the product breaks, the sidewall inflates, bending outward. Replace such a condenser first, if you find a characteristic defect.
Burned out resistors turn dark. Some retain performance, it is advisable to replace such a radio element.
Some hair dryers are equipped with self-regulation. The effect is achieved by using a resistive divider, one shoulder of which is an element that reacts to the temperature. Further steps are determined by the diagram of realization of parameter control. Recommendation:
There is a big chance of failure if the instrument is trained to respond only to a fixed resistance value. It remains to find a circuit diagram on the Internet or draw it yourself.
Each hair dryer has a motor equipped with an impeller and a heating element. The function of the impeller is to suck in air from the back of the unit. Air flows through the heater and comes out hot from the front. In addition, the hair dryer is equipped with a slider for switching modes and elements that protect the heater from overheating.
The basis of the device fan is an electric motor of direct current collector type. In different models its voltage can be 12, 18, 24 and 36 volts. Also, for some models there is an electric motor that operates with an alternating voltage of 220 volts. The motor is powered through the work of a separate coil. The constant voltage is provided by a diode bridge, attached to the terminals of the electric motor.
The heater of the hair dryer, and specifically. its frame, are plates of non-combustible material that do not conduct current. There is a nichrome coil on it. The number of its sections depends on how many operating modes the device is designed for.
The hot heater needs constant cooling due to air flowing through the hair dryer. The coil can burn out if it overheats. The design of the hair dryer therefore includes an independent shutdown when the critical temperature is reached, which is ensured by the thermostat. It is a pair of closed to each other contacts placed on a bimetal platform. The thermostat is located on the heater near the outlet, so it is constantly blown out of the hot air during operation. If the permitted temperature is exceeded, the contacts on the bimetal platform disconnect and the heating stops. The thermostat cools down after a while and the circuit is re-closed.
Some models are additionally equipped with a disposable thermal fuse for protection. It blows up if the optimum temperature is exceeded and must then be replaced.
As a rule, almost all hair dryers have almost the same circuit:
- The heater consists of three coils: H1, H2 and H3. The first coil supplies power to the motor, the other two provide heating.
- In the “up” position SW1 the circuit is not energized. In position 1 the hair dryer operates at minimum power: diode VD5 cuts off one half-wave of alternating voltage, only heating coil H2 is switched on (not at full power), the motor rotates at low revolution speed.
- In position 2 hair dryer operates at average power: diode VD5 is shorted, both half-waves of alternating voltage are fed into the circuit, coil Н2 operates at full power, the motor rotates at nominal speed.
- In position 3, the hair dryer works at maximum available power because H3 coil is connected. When the cool button is pressed the heating coils H2, H3 are switched off and the motor continues to run.
- Diodes VD1-VD4 are half-wave rectifier. The inductor coils L1, L2 and capacitors C2, C3 reduce the level of noise that inevitably occurs when using a collector motor. F1, F2 are the thermostat and the thermostat.
About two years ago I came into the store and said: “I need a hair dryer that won’t mess up my hair!”. The seller understood me and suggested this model: ionization, professional motor, cold air. In short, just a miracle machine. At the time I did not understand what the ionization is and why I need a professional motor, but later I made my own opinion about the hair dryer, which I am ready to share.
The hair dryer was sold (of course) in a box, which also included the manual, warranty and two attachments. Since I don’t do styling, I only used the attachments once and only to find that my hands were out of my shoulders.
The tips that came with it. The two tips are the diffuser nozzle “with fingers”, designed for drying at the roots and giving volume, and the concentrator nozzle, which directs the air to a narrower area.
I did not use the diffuser nozzle because I did not understand how to use it, and for some reason my dumb question did not get to google.
I removed the concentrator nozzle because, first of all, I don’t style my hair, I just dry it. And secondly, it really lengthens the hair dryer, which was uncomfortable for me.
Yes, yes, I’m the kind of person who ALWAYS reads the manuals and annotations.
Since I can no longer reproduce the instructions that were in the box, I took the instructions from the website.
I’ve divided the safety precautions into groups to make this information easy to understand. Some points are repeated because repetition is generally accepted. the mother of the teachings.
It is forbidden to use an electric extension cord.
Do not touch the device with wet hands.
Do not submerge the device in water, even to wash it.
When using the unit in the bathroom, unplug it after use, as the proximity of water is a hazard even when the unit is unplugged.
Parts of the appliance become very hot during operation. Be careful not to let the surface of the appliance come into contact with your skin. Make sure that the power cord does not come into contact with hot surfaces of the appliance.
Do not touch the body of the appliance, t.к. If the power cord becomes hot, hold the appliance by the handle.
Unplug the appliance when: before cleaning or carrying out maintenance operations, if the appliance is not working properly, after use, or if you leave it unattended, even for a short period of time.
To unplug the appliance, do not pull the power cord but the plug.
Do not use the appliance if the power cord is damaged.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorized service center or a qualified technician for safety reasons.
Do not use the device and contact an authorized service center in the following cases: if the device has fallen or malfunctioned.
Make sure that the operating voltage of your power supply corresponds to the voltage stated on the rating plate of the appliance. Any mistake when connecting the unit may cause permanent damage that is not covered by the warranty.
For added protection, we recommend connecting a residual current device (RCD) with a rated differential operating current not exceeding 30mA to the electrical circuit of the bathroom. Consult your installer.
The appliance must be installed and used in accordance with the regulations in force in the country of use.
Do not clean the appliance with powders containing abrasive or corrosive substances.
Do not use the appliance at temperatures below 0 °C and above 35 °C.

I want to draw attention in this point to the power of the hair dryer.
On the internet I found the following information:
If you have very fine, brittle hair that is above the shoulder blades, a hair dryer with a maximum power of 1,200 watts is the right choice for you. If, on the contrary, the curls are very thick and long, you should choose a model with more power, above 1600 watts. These models help make curls lush and voluminous.
The optimum power is considered to be 1600-1800 watts.
The power of this hair dryer is 2200 watts. The power is huge, but for myself I can say that I have not burned my hair and scalp, too. I use the hair dryer regularly, two or three times a week.
I do not know what material the body is made of, but it is quite hard and durable. It feels a little rough, as if in the hand, so it does not slip. But it is a material that collects dust and it does not wipe easily. In addition, you can see as if there were abrasions, although I do not even know where they came from: I used the hair dryer very carefully.
The grille on the back is removable.
☁ Quality and speed of drying (operating modes)
My long hair, below the waist, the hair dryer dries very quickly. Up to light humidity. for about 7 minutes. I dry until completely dry in 10-15 minutes, depending on the combination of speed and temperature. My hair itself dries very reluctantly, for a long time, and hair dryers do not take them right away too. I think the result with this hair dryer is excellent.
As I pointed out in the technical specifications, the hair dryer has two controls.
First. adjusts the air speed, the second. supply air temperature.
Also has a separate button for cold air.
So, let’s talk about all the possible combinations.
Three temperature settings, two speeds.
1 speed. main. A train drove past you and threw your hair back.
2 speed. Cheetah (120 km/h, as the manufacturer promises). A tornado whizzes past you and the ends of your hair desperately holding on to the main length so they don’t get swept away.
Low temperature. Close to cold air, but with a warmth.
Medium temperature. Medium-cold, medium-hot.
Main speed low temperature = cold air. I usually don’t dry with it because I’m cold, I don’t like this temperature.
Basic speed medium temperature = warm air. I usually use this mode most of the time of each drying.
Main speed high temperature = hot air. I leave it on at the beginning and at the roots to get quicker results but not for long because the air feels really hot to my thin hair.
Cheetah speed low temperature = warm air. I also use it when I want my hair to go faster, but seldom.
Cheetah speed medium temperature = hot air. I very rarely use this mode because it’s quite hot and powerful.
Cheetah high speed = risk of burns. I don’t use this mode at all because it’s suicidal for my hair.
For starters, what is the ionization feature??
If a girl knows that her hair is very sensitive to any external influences, you should choose a model with an ionizing effect.
Thanks to the ionization function, even the most weakened hair gets its natural shine in just a few uses.
The built-in ionization protects your hair from overheating and excessive static, preserving its natural vitality
At first I was very skeptical about what the salesman said about the magic ionization and thought that I was being rubbed a hair dryer with a feature that I couldn’t even verify.
But later I saw the difference. It’s true, it’s there!
When I was drying my hair with the model without the ionizer, I felt over-dry and my hair tangled easily (I always use conditioner, so the tangles were not due to lack of it). When I started drying my hair with this blow dryer, I saw that it was always shiny, “crumbly,” smooth (as smooth as my split-brained, broken hair can be), healthy, and not a bit dry.
I would like to give some recommendations from myself on how to use this hair dryer:
- I always move the hair dryer around, to make sure I don’t “overcook it. I don’t dry one place for a long time: I go around the head, along the whole length, just a little waving the hair dryer to take the heat load off one place.
- I always dry my hair from the roots to the tips.
- I don’t do one strip dry for a long time, I just put it on medium-hot for the main speed, I go over the roots and just when I feel like it’s too hot, I put it on medium-hot and just leave it like that.
- I take little pauses in the dryer to comb my hair, blow my hair in cool air.
The buttons are in the front, which is not very handy, because I have to hold the hair dryer so carefully so I don’t have to switch all the buttons with my fingers. Sometimes in the heat of drying, the hair dryer can be turned off by accident. But the handle is comfortable to hold due to its “rubberization”, it does not slip.
The cord is long, so I can move the hair dryer freely.
It is hard to hold the dryer in hand at first because of its weight, it is unusual after the lighter plastic models. Later on you get used to it.
Also at first I could feel the vibration of the hair dryer in my hand, but I also got used to it a long time ago.
The hair dryer, in my opinion, quite noisy. It feels like a vacuum cleaner works. But so far no one around me has complained during my drying.
Weight of the hair dryer 1.076 kg. You have to take that into account, because, first of all, you can feel the weight in your hand. And secondly, it’s not easy to throw it in the bag and take it with you. The handle is not foldable, the hair dryer does not fit in every case, it is much heavier in the luggage.
The hair dryer has a loop to hang it up, but in my opinion it is too small, and therefore not very handy. So I store the hair dryer in a big thick case (not included, just found a suitably sized case at home) with a lock. And it does not get dirty, and just do not get damaged, and the water will not get. In short, for me, it is ideal.
Note that, according to the instructions, during storage, the wire should not be pressed against the body, you must wrap the wire so that there is a loop between the handle and the wire.
☁ How it differs from other models
I compared the hair dryer to more expensive models because I was surprised by the abundance of models that are, in fact, very similar.
I took the ROWENTA CV8642 and ROWENTA CV8653D0 for comparison.
I compared it on the website that sells these hair dryers. And here according to the site no special differences I did not find.
Rowenta CV8722 Infini Pro differs in that it has a turbo mode, diffuser nozzle, removable grill, and a different shape, longer handle. It does not turn off when overheated. It weighs (1.079 kg) more than, for example, the ROWENTA CV8653D0 (0.760 kg).
How do you know whether this hairdryer is the right one for you?
On the Internet sources recommend to pay attention to the power. As I wrote before, the power is great, so if you suspect your hair doesn’t need that much power, it’s best not to take any chances.
In the store be sure to take the hair dryer in your hand and try to move it. Are you ready to get used to the pound weight?? Are the buttons comfortable for you??
Do you have enough storage space for such a voluminous hair dryer? Yes, and in general, is there somewhere to turn around during drying, so as not to hit the surrounding objects with a hair dryer?
Would you take your hair dryer on trips?? Are you willing to lug around a heavy hair dryer??
- The hair dryer comes with two nozzles, which is useful for those who like to style (well, or don’t, but do).
- The grille is removable and can be cleaned.
- Professional Motor.
- The hair dryer has 2 speed and 3 temperature settings that provide a personalized touch.
- A long cord that makes it easy to move the hair dryer without being “tied” to the outlet.
Hard, durable material that isn’t easily damaged.
The really working ionization function, after drying the hair is not overdry, smooth, soft.
Hello my dear little recommendations.I want to brag to you about another purchase. And today it’s a hair dryer.
I want to say that the choice of everything up to and including liquid soap, I approach consciously, and my choice comes first from the study of information and reviews on our favorite site, namely here.
What was the motivation for my new hair dryer purchase, all the previous has not yet gone bad, and he was about 7 years old.This is my move. The old hair dryer, I left my mother, which by the way chose here, too.I did not miss it, it still works, thank you for that my girls.And now I’m ready to share my novelty. And this is what it is.
Hair dryer weighing 600 grams a little heavy, but my husband assured me that the greater the weight the more powerful the motor, I believed him. The weight is not critical, it might be a little uncomfortable to hold it at first, because I got used to babyliss hair dryer, it is about 200 grams lighter.
The hair dryer has three temperature settings and three positions of inflation plus a cooling button, I do not use it because I am enough 1 temperature.
The hair dryer comes with 3 attachments, these are two diffusers and one massage. One diffuser is a little longer and narrower, the other a little shorter and wider. The longer one is suitable for smoothing and sealing the hair follicles, as the dense air jet, if dried from top to bottom, the hair is slightly smoother; the shorter one provides a greater air volume, which reduces the drying time. Well massage naturally speaks for itself, is suitable for owners of thick dense hair, so it quickly penetrates the roots, and also if you put the foam on your hair, tilt your head forward and in a circular motion leaning on the head, you get light wavy hair.
Film drying fast enough at 2200 power on my hair to the shoulders it takes 5 minutes. Also the hair dryer has an ionization function, compared to others, it does its job, the hair is not electrified, especially important in the autumn-winter period bringing hats and shawls. I can’t tell you how long this hair dryer will last, but I’m sure for a very long time. Since it has a ceramic heater removable back, it is very relevant for people with pets, as sometimes fluff and hair hanging in the air is sucked into the hair dryer and thus it is easy to clean. The size of the hair dryer can also be seen in the photo, this is just the standard of convenience, for me if a little more than the palm of my hand, It means that the heated air will not be very hot, will not burn, and a wide butt says that the film will capture a large amount of air, also without interrupting it and quickly dry your hair. So if you choose a medium-priced hair dryer, this is it. Wishing you gorgeous, manageable, shiny hair. Your Nika.
We learned how to take a hair dryer apart. Now you need to troubleshoot the problem so you can use it for a long time. If the hair dryer does not want to turn on at all, the first thing to check the integrity of the electrical cord and plug. A visual inspection will help determine if the plug is working. If upon examination you can see signs of burning or melting, you need to replace the plug. Often the electric plug and cord are one and the same, then the entire cord must be replaced.
To protect the hair dryer from overheating are used thermal switch and thermal fuse. The first is a contact plate that opens at a certain temperature and breaks the circuit. The thermal fuse also protects your hair dryer from overheating. The fuse blows and opens the circuit when it overheats too much. Также в число неисправностей может входить неработающий двигатель. Часто это может происходить с феном «Philips». Как разобрать его написано выше.
