    GHD repairs

    I use my sisters old GHD's, they're the GHD 3 so a good few years old and past their guarantee.

    One of the plates is loose and falls out if you hold them in a certain way. They still work fine but it's just a bit annoying.

    Do GHD do repairs on this sort of thing, at a cost obviously? I've only got my mobile at Uni and their 0800 number might be expensive to call so though I would try and find out on here first.

    If I can get the job I've an interview for this week I'll probably buy a new pair, but if not I can't afford it so a repair could be cheaper.

    Any advice/experience would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    Have never worked on a pair but I'm guessing the clips are broken and you need a heat proof adhesive. a bit of ceramic cement to bond the plate in place. Would definately do as a makeshift repair.
    A few drops of firerope adhesive would also do the Job, shop.vitcas.com/vit…asp

    a better option might be heat resistant silicone but might be a tad more expensive

    Wow, 25 quid for someone to drop a bit of glue in, great value.

    Hmmmnm well when you don't know what's wrong with them they fixed it's for me and guaranteed the repair! So yeah great value. Either that or £100 for a new pair know what I'm gonna do.

    If you don't know what's wrong with them that's a fair call but for something as trivial as a broken clip on the heater you'd be throwing money away. Wasn't having go at you btw, just find it amazing what these people charge for something they have learnt in a ebook

    Thanks a lot for the replies, I might try the adhesive first, for a few quid it's worth a go and it is purely that it's falling out, so should help.
