1 of my gerbing gloves not working

one of my gloves is not working. The right one works fine, my hand in this 20 degree day on the way to work is fine.

But the left does not heat. I checked muiltiple plugs, there is power going to it. But the glove just is not heating.

I am pugging directly to the battery(with cable of course).

Ive also tried going through the electric vest and it does not work either, but entire jacket heats up.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

My left Gerbing glove stopped heating a while back too. A connection inside the glove had failed (very thin wires). If you are very good with soldering small gauge wiring you might try to repair it.

And I've heard various tales about Gerbing's ability to fulfill their return/warranty policy so good luck with that if you go that route.

Uh, you're not gonna like this.

And from their website:

"When you purchase a Gerbing product within the United States, the heating elements (Microwire TM) are warrantied for life. Electrical plugs, Connectors, and any solder joints, as well as all materials and craftsmanship are covered by a one year warranty from date of purchase."

Sorry, Bud. Hope your gloves are less than a year old.

My 10 year old Gerbing Jacket and one glove was not working properly about a year ago. Called the company and was told to send them , along with the controller, back to them for testing. The controller was working fine but one glove was not and parts of the jacket were not. This was the older more bulky wiring. They gave me a new pair of gloves and jacket. I couldn't have been more pleased with the way I was treated by Gerbings.

Contact Gerbings. They price repairs on old Gerbings stuff very reasonably. Their rates are looow.
Then decide. I needed a jacket circuit repaired and it only ran $40.

I had the exact problem a year ago - one glove failed to heat. After contacting Gerbings, I sent in the jacket and gloves and they completed a repair for a reasonable price. I think it was about $40. But every situation is different. Gerbings will give you an estimate before proceeding. In any case, a repair will be cheaper than buying new gear. The downside to a repair is that you will be without heated gear for a while.

I had the same problem

The first time it happened a couple years ago I sent it to Gerbings and they said it was something internal in the jacket, not the glove, and fixed it free. It worked for a year until it happened again. This time they said it was a connecter in the sleeve. Cost $50 for them to repair it.
