i want to reflow a computer motherboard, can i use a oven to do it? Answered
i know people have used toaster ovens to reflow circuit boards, but a laptop mainboard is too big to fit in one.
i was wondering if i could use a electric oven (like you bake cakes and such in) to reflow the motherboard, im asking because it still needs to be usable to cook food in afterwards.
i was also wondering if during the process, would components fall off the board? since components are on both sides, im worried they might fall off, and what about the connectors? theyre made of plastic, would they melt?
if i can do this, what temperature should the oven be set at and how long should i keep it in there?
