There is constant maintenance needed to keep soldering, the key ones are the tip fastening nuts, and the tip itself. The tip eventually needs sanding and immediate retinning, Clean with damp rag during and after each soldering event, and heavily re tin at end of event.

What is the proper output voltage going into the solder tip?


The voltage is nearly unreadable it is so low, but the current is quite high. If the tip won't heat, loosen the tip nuts and re-tighten.

The light comes on. It does not heat up. The gun worked a day ago, what's up?


The tip is probably dirty. Loosen up the screws on the side and pull the tip out. Clean them off by scraping them with a knife or with sandpaper. Put it back in and tighten the screws. It should work then. Sometimes it's just that the screws are loose.
