Question about Weller Welding Tools
What probably happened is that the tip oxidized (typically made of copper) and the oxidation layer is a very poor conductor. You should be able to go on Google or Amazon and find a new tip for your iron. They cost about $5 and it should be good as new.
I would also recommend tinning your tip everytime you are done soldering. All you have to do is put enough solder on the tip to cover it (usually only about 1/2") and then turn off the iron and let the solder dry. This will help prolong the life of the new tip.
