I have a Conair 134 wall-mounted hair dryer, which is working perfectly but has two broken clips in the holding bracket so now the dryer is very loose when put back in the bracket. Is there a way to salvage this situation instead of getting a new unit?

  • why not move and than mount it to a horizontal surface? Or install a buckle strap (like on fire extinguisher wall mounts).

  • Barring finding replacement parts (seems unlikely, but I haven't looked - I assume you have) probably not. Few consumer appliances are repairable these days, if only by not providing any replacement parts. You might get someone with a 3D printer to print up some parts that might work, but unless that's "for fun, for free (or a beer)" it's not cost effective .vs. replacement.

    you could glue a supermagnet to the side of the hair dryer and glue a second supermagnet, or just a piece of metal, to the holder

    make blocks that fits into the opening in the picture ... use springy foam, like a pool noodle or old flipflop sandals ... if it holds the hair dryer, then glue the blocks into place ... if you don't have foam, then test the idea using cardboard ... if it works, then look for foam

    I’m voting to close this question because we don't do small appliance repair here.
