SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Warning! When using electric tools, the following
basic safety precautions should always be taken to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal
injury. Read all these instructions before attempting to
operate the product and save this booklet.
For safe operation:
• Keep the work area clean. Cluttered areas and
benches invite injuries.
• Consider the work area environment. Do not expose
the power tool to rain and do not use in damp or wet
locations. Keep the work area well lit. Do not use
the power tool where there is a risk to cause fire
or explosion.
• Guard against electric shock. Avoid body contact,
where possible, with earthed or grounded surfaces
(e.g. pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators).
• Keep children away. Do not let visitors touch the
tool or extension cord. All visitors should be kept
away from the work area.
• Store idle tools. When not in use, tools should be
stored in a dry, high or locked place, out of reach
of children.
• Do not force the tool. It will do the job better and
more safely at the rate for which it was intended.
• Use the right tool. Do not force small tools or
attachments to do the job of a heavy duty tool.
Do not use the tool for purposes not intended;
for example, do not use a circular saw to cut tree
limbs or logs.
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery as they can be caught in moving parts.
Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are
recommended when working outdoors. Wear
protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• Use safety glasses. Use a face or dust mask as well,
if the operation is dusty or if the tool is being used in
enclosed spaces.
• Connecting dust extraction equipment. If devices
are provided for the connection of dust extraction
and collection ensure these are connected and
properly used, especially in confined areas.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never carry the tool by its
cord or yank it to disconnect it from the socket. Keep
the cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
• Secure the work. Use clamps or a vice to hold the
work. It is safer than using a hand and it frees both
hands to operate the tool.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
• Maintain the tool with care. Keep a cutting tool
sharp and clean for better and safer performance.
Follow the instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories. Inspect the tools cord periodically and,
if damaged, have repaired by an authorised service
facility. Inspect the extension cord periodically and
replace if damaged. Keep the handles dry, clean and
free from oil and grease.
• Disconnect the tool when not in use, before
servicing and when changing accessories such as
blades, bits and cutters.
• Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form the
habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from the tool and replaced in
the storage area before switching on.
• Avoid unintentional starting. Do not carry a
plugged-in tool with a finger on the switch.
Ensure the switch is off when plugging in.
• Use an outdoor extension cord. When a tool is used
outdoors, only use an extension cord intended for
outdoor use and so marked.
• Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, use common
sense and do not operate the tool when tired.
• Check damaged parts. Before further use of the tool,
a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine whether it will
operate properly and perform its intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, free running of
moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting and any
other conditions that may affect its operation.
A guard or other part that is damaged should be
properly repaired or replaced by an authorised
service agent unless otherwise indicated in the
product booklet. Have defective switches replaced
by an authorised service agent. Do not use the tool if
the switch does not turn it on and off.
• Warning! The use of any accessory or attachment,
other than recommended in the product booklet,
may present a risk of personal injury.
• Have the tool repaired by a qualified person. The
electrical tool is in accordance with the relevant
safety requirements. Repairs should only be carried
out by qualified persons using original spare parts,
otherwise, this may result in considerable danger to
the user.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR HEATGUNS
• Always switch off before putting tool down.
• Extreme care should be taken when stripping paint,
the peelings, residue and vapours of paint may
contain lead, which is poisonous. Any pre -1960

buildings may have been painted in the past with
paint containing lead and covered by additional
layers of paint. Once deposited on surfaces, hand to
mouth contact can result in the ingestion of lead.
Exposures to even low levels of lead can cause
irreversible brain and nervous system damage; young
and unborn children are particularly vulnerable. Do
not smoke, eat or drink in a work area that could or
may be contaminated by lead. Lead based paints
should only be removed by a professional and
should not be removed using a heatgun.
When removing paints you should ensure that
your work area is enclosed. It is advisable to wear
a dust mask.
Do not burn the paint. Use the integral scraper
where supplied otherwise keep the nozzle at least
25mm (1”) from the surface as this keeps the
temperature below the required 450˚C. If you are
scraping from a vertical position then you should
scrape downwards to prevent the paint from falling
back into the heatgun and burning. Dispose of all
paint debris safely and ensure that the work area is
thoroughly cleaned after completing the job.
Do not use in a damp atmosphere or where
flammable gases may be present or use near
combustible materials. Spaces behind boards,
ceilings and floors and wall cavities in timber frame
constructed houses can contain flammable
materials. Check before using the heatgun.
Allow the tool to cool fully before storing.
Ensure adequate ventilation when using heatguns
as toxic fumes may be produced.
Do not use as a hairdryer! The air temperature is far
higher than a hairdryer.
Do not obstruct either the air intake or nozzle outlet
as this may cause excessive heat build up resulting
in damage to the tool.
Do not direct the hot air blast at other people.
Do not touch the metal nozzle as it gets very hot during
use and remains hot for up to 30 minutes after use.
Do not place the nozzle against anything while using
or immediately after use.
Do not poke anything down the nozzle as it could
give you an electric shock. Do not look down the
nozzle while the unit is working because of the high
temperatures being produced.
Do not allow paint to adhere to the nozzle or
scraper as it could ignite after a time.
Do not operate your heatgun whilst it is hanging by
the hanging ring.
Save these instructions!
DOUBLE INSULATION
The tool is double insulated. This means that all
the external metal parts are electrically insulated
from the mains power supply. This is done by
placing insulation barriers between the
electrical and mechanical components making
it unnecessary for the tool to be earthed.
Note: Double insulation does not take the place
of normal safety precautions when operating the
tool. The insulation system is for added
protection against injury resulting from a
possible electrical insulation failure within
the tool.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Be sure the supply is the same as the voltage given on
the rating plate. The tool is fitted with a two-core cable
and plug.
MAINS PLUG REPLACEMENT (UK ONLY)
Should the mains plug need replacing and you are
competent to do this, proceed as instructed below.
If you are in doubt, contact a Black & Decker service
agent or a qualified electrician.
• Disconnect the plug from the power supply.
• Cut off the plug and dispose of safely. A plug with
bared copper conductors is very dangerous if
engaged in a live socket outlet.
• Only fit BS1363A approved plugs fitted with the
correctly rated fuse.
Note: Fuses do not give personal protection against
electric shock.
• The cable wire colours, or a letter, will be marked at
the connection point of most good quality plugs.
Attach the wires to their respective points in the
plug (see diagram). Brown is L (live) and blue is
N (neutral).

• Before replacing the top cover of the plug ensure
that the cable restraint is holding the outer sheath of
the cable firmly and that the two leads are correctly
fixed at the terminal screws. If the fuse cover is
missing or damaged do not use the plug.
For replacement or detachable fuse covers,
contact a Black & Decker service agent.
Warning! Never connect live or neutral wires to the
earth pin marked E or
.
MAINS PLUG REPLACEMENT
(AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND ONLY)
Should the mains plug or cordset of the product be
damaged, it must only be replaced by an authorised
Black & Decker service agent because special
purpose tools are required.
EXTENSION CABLES
Up to 30m (100ft) of 3-core extension cable can be used
without undue loss of power.
Note: An extension cable should not be used unless
absolutely necessary. Use of an improper extension
cable could result in a risk of fire and electric shock.
If an extension cable must be used, make sure it is
properly wired, contains the correct rated fuse as
recommended in its literature and is in good
electrical condition.
UNWANTED TOOLS AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Should you find one day that the tool needs
replacement or is of no further use, think of the
protection of the environment. Black & Decker
service agents will accept old tools and will
dispose of them in an environmentally safe way.

HANDLING YOUR HEATGUN
Do not place your
hand over the air
vents or block
these vents in any
way. This restricts
the airflow through
the element and
causes over heating. Your heatgun
is designed for
one-handed use.
KX1682, KX1683
only:
To turn your
heatgun on, push
the orange switch
(2) forward to the 1,
2 or 3 position (position 3 is on KX1683 only). The position
numbers represent the heat numbers described in the table
above. To switch your heatgun off, pull the orange switch
back to reveal the off (O) position.
CD700, KX1600 only:
To switch your
heatgun on, press
the rocker switch
to depress the ‘I’
position. To switch
your heatgun off,
press the rocker
switch to depress
the ‘O’ position.
Note: Allow the element to heat up for a few seconds
before use. Initially, some smoke may emit from your
heatgun. This is normal and will soon cease.
COOLING DOWN
In use, the nozzle of your heatgun becomes extremely
hot. Great care is necessary when cooling your
heatgun after use.
KX1682, KX1683 only:
To speed up the cooling time, set the orange switch to
heat setting 1 for a few minutes before switching your
heatgun off.
Only after
switching off,
suspend your
heatgun on the
handing ring (5)
or stand the tool
as in “Hands free
use”. Leave to
cool for at least 30 minutes.
KX1682, KX1683 only:
A rollover feature prevents your heatgun being placed
nozzle down, thus preventing damage to the surface on
which your heatgun is placed.
HANDS FREE USE
Your heatgun is also designed for operation while
placed on the stands (4). Always point your heatgun
7

away from you.
Secure the cable
to prevent pulling
your heatgun off
the stand. Do not
touch the nozzle
and ensure that
nothing is
dropped into the
nozzle. Carefully
switch off your
heatgun and then
allow it to cool
;;
;;
(see cooling down procedure).
FITTING THE SCRAPER (KX1682, KX1683)
Ensure your heatgun is cool.
Align the slot of
the scraper blade
with the
protrusion on the
blade holder and
position under the
retaining screw.
Note: Ensure the hole in the scraper is to the left of the
screw in the blade holder.
Tighten the
retaining screw.
Place the blade
holder over the
nozzle outlet.
Ensure it is
aligned. The small
bump on the
inside of the blade
holder engages with the recess on the nozzle. Tighten
the blade holder clamp screw.
PAINT STRIPPING
When stripping a point next to glass, it is necessary to
protect the glass from the heat.
A Black & Decker glass protector nozzle is used for
this purpose (available as an accessory). Your heatgun
is not suitable for stripping metal framed windows.
This is because the heat from the heatgun is
conducted
through the metal
and can crack the
glass. Scrape with
the grain of the
wood wherever
possible. Do not
linger on one spot
for too long as the
surface may char
or ignite.
KX1682, KX1683 only:
Your heatgun is designed for use with the scraper
blade to strip paint.
Proceed as follows:
Ensure the nozzle
is cool and fit the
scraper blade.
Hold your heatgun
with the scraper
30-40°
blade in contact
with the surface at an angle of 30-40˚.
When the paint softens, scrape firmly. Experiment to
establish the length of time necessary to apply the heat
to obtain optimum results. Scrape the softened paint
immediately or it will harden again.
Take care to prevent paint and debris collecting on the
scraper because it may ignite. Carefully clean the
scraper blade with a knife should any build up occur.
When scraping vertical surfaces, scrape downwards
to prevent debris falling into the nozzle.
Note: When stripping a point next to glass, use a glass
protector nozzle instead of the scraper blade - a
manual scraper is needed to scrape off the paint.
CD700, KX1600 only:
Your heatgun is designed to soften paint and laquer
enabling it to be removed using a good quality
hand scraper.
Proceed as follows:
Direct the hot air onto the area to be removed. When
the paint softens, scrape firmly. Experiment to establish
the length of time necessary to apply the heat to obtain
optimum results. Scrape the softened paint
immediately or it will harden again.
