  • It would quickly burn out the glue gun or trip the service breaker for the socket.

  • The heating element will burn out in a short time 

    but before it does, the device wil get a lot hotter than it was designed to. 

        

    Really a dangerous situation that should Not be allowed to happen.

  • You can't plug it in to a 220v outlet. Why? So you stay safe.
