I bought a number of things from them over the years, but my patience is wearing thin. Maybe beyond thin. My HF heat gun turned into a jet powered flamethrower the last time I tried using it and now this. Which is after replacing a breaker bar 3 or 4 times that I’ve broke with hand power alone, no cheater pipe. Considering I’m not the Incredible Hulk, that’s a bit disappointing.I’ve never bought something from harbor freight that hasn’t broke at the worst time. They even managed to screw up making jack stands.
One job tools is the best I hope for.
That being said, check your wiring from the switch on the stringer. Try and bypass it, could be something simple like that.
I’m suspecting the wiring and switch on the stinger is likely ok since I can see the feed wheels twitch, but of course I’ll verify that isn’t the issue when I tear into it. If I had to hazard a guess, I’m suspecting that if there are capacitors inside, they likely detonated. At any rate, I’m sure it’s out of warranty and I’ll likely find the problem when I tear it apart. When it stopped working and I figured out it would feed cold but not hot, I kinda lost my temper. I was hotter than it was outside, which was considerable. There was no way I was gonna open up the case and try to find the problem in that state. It took hours for me to cool off.
