    It is a BABYLISS PRO BABNT5548 2000W. I am looking for a schematic.

    I doubt you find a schematic for such a simple device. What's wrong with it?

    And hair dryers are really not all that complicated. A couple of switches, a heating element and a motor. Other that perhaps fixing a broken wire, most aren't woth the effort of fixing. Just toss it and buy another.

    There really isn't much to them. If you have one, drawing the schematic after teardown wouldn't be a huge hurdle.

    The only "quirk" the one you are asking about has compared to other hair dryers is an ionizer. An ionizer is usually one or more pointy wires in the air stream with a high voltage applied to it.

    If you have one that is not working, post the issues you are having with it.

    I doubt the schematic is online/available, unless the patent has been around for a while, in which case you can look at the patent for it to see the schematic.

    Hair dryers also have a meltable link in the air stream.

    Usually, when a hairdryer fails, it is the thermal fuse located next to the heat element in the airstream. They puke when the screen on the air intake gets overloaded with whatever... Secondly, is the rectifier if the blower motor is 120v. DC.
    Other than that, they are seldom worth messing with... though yours sounds as it might be a professional salon unit, being 2 KW.
