Hi,
Our Xytronic LF-852D hot air gun only blows hot air when i hold my hand on, or near the gun holder.
Do you know why this is?

The advert states "Heat switches off when air gun is in holder and switches on again when the gun is taken out for use" so I would guess whatever senses the proximity of the gun to the holder is broken, possibly a high impedance floating input is picking up noise from your hand.

I have a SMD rework tool which has a magnetic switch
in the cradle, and cuts heater power when it's placed
into the cradle. Maybe this has gone intermittent and
responds to mechanical movement of the cradle.
