Question about Weller Welding Tools

1 Answer

My problem is continuing early failure of your product. I have been in business for 45 years and always selected Weller soldering irons. For the past 5-6 years the quality of your products has fallen off completely I have purchased at least 6 irons which have failed within the first 3 weeks of work. I expect better quality and have begin buying other brands....Terry S. Gilbreth , owner Five Raven Art enterprises

If the coil wire is snaped then you will need to replace all the coil. usually the power from the outlet goes stright to the coil and connects to both ends of it's windings

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.

Hi, I'm not sure the tip is defective. Check that the tip is screwed in tight. If it is not good and tight the tip will not get a good heat transfer from the solder wand. Hope this helps. If the wand will heat then the tip should.

SOURCE: The tip of my weller

This happens quite frequently. On the tip there are two nuts that hold the tip to the gun. Tighten them a bit. The tip is made of copper and as this heats, it causes the connection where the nuts are to become a higher resistance and thus lower heat. When you tighten them, it "cuts" through the copper oxidation (caused by the heat) and lowers the resistance, hence more heat.

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.
