To get you started, here are some do-it-yourself repair tips for your metal detector.
1. Non-functioning search heads
If you have a non-functional search head, try to analyze the condition. Check for any mud or dirt sticking on your metal detector's search head.
If it is full of dirt, try to clean it up with a WD40. Squirt the dirt out by applying the solution abundantly on the bottom and top of the search head. It will be much easier now to remove the mud. You can also use this solution in cleaning your wellies.
By keeping your metal detector's search head and wellies free from mud you can use them for a longer period of time.
2. Store your batteries when not in use
In order to avoid any battery-related problems with your metal detector, it is best to stash them in the "fridge" when not in use. By doing this your batteries will last longer.
However, remember to place them on a lukewarm "radiator" an hour before you start metal detecting. This will give your batteries the opportunity to revive their functions.
3. Turn it off
Always turn off your metal detector before repairing it. This is to avoid any further dilemma. Best of all, try to avoid starting your repairs right after you have used your metal detector. Let the parts cool down before you start touching them.
4. Find a reliable repair shop
If you cannot do simple repairs on your metal detector, find a reliable repair shop. This way you avoid spending more on repair charges. Plus, you can be sure that your metal detector is in good hands.
Indeed, you can fix or repair your metal detector without having to spend hundreds of dollars on repair charges or lengthy restoration, thereby, curbing your metal detecting.
