I examined the tool and here are the reasons why they fail.
Use some common sense while using the heat gun and understand the difference between using it in cold weather or during the summer. I f you are stripping paint in cold weather, then using the high-temperature settings, should not be a problem. Using the gun with an outdoor temperature of 85-90 F makes a big difference on its performance.
The highest heating setting should be only used for short periods of time, at this setting the resistors get red hot, which means that not enough air is going over them. A constant use on high will end in the resistors failing. Suggestion if you need to use it in high, do your best to switch between high and low so it may reduce the temperature of the internal components.
If you are working with the high temp setting, do not suddenly turn off the heat gun, move the switch to the low temp setting, so it will reduce the temperature of the internal components, unfortunately this gun does not have a cool air mode only, that would it allow it to cool completely before one could turn it off.
Do not turn it off from high, and leave it with the nozzle facing down, (hot air rises). The residual heat will be escaping from the back and will start to take a toll on the little fan blade and motor.
Pay attention, when you turn off the gun, leave it resting with the nozzle up, that way the heat will dissipate without affecting the plastic casing.
Do not get the tip of the nozzle at one inch from the surface, you are reducing the airflow of the gun and it will overheat. Try to keep a distance of about 2 inches from the surface.
Work with the gun in an angle from the surface, it will reduce the air static pressure and improve the air flow.
This is not a professional tool; this is a weekend warrior tool. A professional tool for continuous hours of operation is over $100.
Before the first use, shake it slightly, if it rattles and it sounds like a loose part on the inside, put in the box and return it. A loose screw, or a small piece of plastic, will break the blades of the fan, and the gun will fail. Do not drop it, it will not take it.
After you finish your work, unplug it, let it cool in a place where there are no materials that can ignite, such plastic or paper bags.
So far it works, I am just being careful with it, to see if it may last.
4 stars because it does not have a cool off setting, and not enough air for the high temp setting.
To start with, boy does this thing get hot! Too bad they don't specify how hot in the description (not that I found). Just the wattage is given. The two temps listed on the gun are 572 & 1000 degrees. Hotter than I need, but I wanted an inexpensive heat gun mainly for handling shrink tubing. I just didn't expect it to be so hot. The body stays completely cool while in use.
The gun weighs only 1 pound, not including the cord weight--I weighed it on a sensitive postal scale. The cord brings it to about 1.4 pounds. Pretty light & easy to handle. The heat gun can rest flat on its back, balanced by the handle. The air intake is on the sides and the back is not ventilated, making it safe to operate in this position. The switch stays in whatever position you set it, with the lower temp also having a lower fan speed. The cord is not grounded, which is fine since they body is plastic.
All of the nozzle accessories pictured are provided, along with instructions. The build quality is OK, though not as stellar as a Porter Cable. It's solid & easy to use, even if the label sticker doesn't quite fit correctly. As should be expected, after the first time you use it a little smoke comes out. Shouldn't be anything to worry about--it's a heat gun!
So far, I would recommend this is an inexpensive and basic heat gun.

Also, for those who complain there's no stand, they must be blind. The heat gun has a built-in stand on the back, and it's quite stable.
