SOURCE: Weller WMRP soldering iron faling prematurely.

I suggest that you set the "Auto Time Off" much longer or turn it off by setting it to 0, and use a standby of 400 degrees after 10 minutes instead.

The reason is that every time this soldering iron has to turn on, it's trying to heat up in about 5-10 seconds. When it does that, it applies full wattage to the heating element, and putting full wattage on them a lot of times is what's burning them out. If the soldering iron maintains the same temperature while not soldering, it only uses 20-30% of the full wattage to keep it at the set temp. This isn't nearly as hard on the heating element.

SOURCE: Bought mini butane soldering iron

When you fill the soldering iron with butane you must have it turned so the butane can is held upside down. Liquid butane must be able to flow into the iron. It's most likely that you held it upright and even though gas butane would have flowed in it would not be enough to light it. Only fill it outdoors.

Weller Pyropen WPA2 extinguishes itself after a few minutes.

Gas (condensation really) may be freezing and constricting flow. Try warming the tip a bit with a hair dryer see if it goes longer.

Misplaced Manual, what butane container to get.

Any butane will work, but the big name-brands are usually filtered better and less likely to cause problems. The biggest issue is the nozzle -- there are a lot of different sizes. Any Weller butane can will fit perfectly (usually cheapest at the local Sears store), but any can with multiple adapters will also work.

If you have an old can that fits, save the nozzle when it's empty. It should fit a different can if you can't find a can that fits the tool.

My Pyropen will not ignite

Not enough information. That's an extremely vague description of the problem. There's no way to suggest a fix without knowing more about it.

Does it spark?
Does butane come out of it?
Is the cylinder full?
Do the switches move properly?
How old is it? How much use has it seen?
Is it an intermittent problem, or constant?

Hi i have an old weller soldering iron and it wont light up, do i have to have the 2 slide controls in a certain position

A soldering iron is composed of a heated metal tip and an insulated handle. Heating is often achieved electrically, by passing an electric current (supplied through an electrical cord or battery cables) through the resistive material of a heating element. Another heating method includes combustion of a suitable gas, which can either be delivered through a tank mounted on the iron (flameless), or through an external flame.

I have the same soldering iron and have found for this problem, the replaceable tip has worn out.
All you need to do is buy a replaceable tip of your choice. The tips are a consumable part that wears out.

Hi all, Just bought a WSTA6 iron, also wouldn't ignite reliably - just figured out you have to block the little air vent holes either side of the start switch with thumb & finger for 2-3 secs. while starting - 2-handed procedure :( -Now works like a charm :)

Couldn't find this info anywhere ???
