I am surprised - maybe its a dud... I have had the same one for almost 3 years (I have little time to play due to having a 3 yr old special needs child). If I was you- call and complain to the compant, especially the person with a new one. I just checked mine out after reading this posting and mine works just fine and it hasn't been used in almost 6 months or more. I use my Xyron sticker maker the most now- it saves time to add adhesive to many diecuts at the same time.
Good luck- I hope you either find a way to make your quickie pen work or get a replacement from the company that makes it.
Next time I wanted a glue pen, I bought a Martha ball point pen.
The Martha glue pen has a "squeeze" area where you hold the pen. If you need a little more glue or if the glue stops flowing, you can apply pressure to push it out.
all my sakura glitter gel pens stopped working every tip i have read about i have tried to no avail, even tonight i have totally dismantled 1 pen ink is runny so i know its not dried up, was hoping to find some new ideas here,
dropped nib down from a great height lol stood in hot water, rubbed on a rubber and my trainers shook like it was a thermameter, nothing
The tip doesn't roll, it's stuck in one place. I finally threw mine out and started again with a fresh one that does work. Next time it happens I will try the rubbing alchohol though. Thanks for the suggestion!! Karen
I have found that after use I pinch the tip of the pen with my fingers to remove glue, place the cap on and set it to where the tip (glue exit point) is facing UP... NOT DOWN... I have thrown away 6 quickie's as they froze shut! LOL (OK NOT LOL at the time!) it has worked for me and I actually have a quickie that is almost EMPTY
Thanks! I WAS storing my tip side down but have now turned it up. (Wish me luck.)
OMGOSH!!! You're a Home girl!!!! LOL I am actually going to Port Townsend tomorrow and hangin out with JEssica from There She Goes and Corinna (CorinnaMcGregor) one of her Trendies... some stampy time is SO SO SO CLOSE!!!!! EEEK!
I just found your post. I also had same problem with 2. I could bubbles moving so knew stick still good. After trying many things I GOT IT!!!!!!!!Heres what I did:
pull cartridge with tip still on out of stick. You'll see a small gap at base of white part of top of cartridge. Pry that off. I took a pin and put in whole. A bit of glue had dried up. Not hard but sticky/gooey. I swirled pin around and got out bad glue. Put back together. lightly tap tip of pen on paper. If you slighty lift you should feel, I also heard, the ball going in and out as ever so slightly lifted off paper. hold pen to paper and glue should slightly start flowing. move slowly on paper and glue began to flow.
I am going to try storing with tip up versus down which is what I was doing.
I have tried and forgotten numerous times over years to get flowing and refused to throw out. I am glad i didn't. Even though we are talking about less that $10 this fix is so worth it made my day. Had to post this as my frustration versus many other peoples I hope I made others day. ENJOY!!!!
Thank you Missy H,
I just did what you said, Had to do it a few times though,and in the end I have now finally got it going, but I did end up pulling out the roller tip as it was screwed up.But it is flowing now, I have it upside down in the pen holder now and will see what happens next time I go to use it.Thanks again I hope it works next time i go to use it.
