Question about Weller TC201T: Soldering Iron For Wtcpt, 42 Watt

Open Question

I bought a Weller TC202 power unit with a TC201 soldering iron. The iron does not heat. Instructions from weller said to check the resistance across the heater and it should be about 13 Ohms. It reads 0. The replacement heater tc208 shows two wires to be connected, my heater is a 3 prong plug in. Did I check the heater correctly? Any suggestions

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.

I have an old Weller soldering iron model 8250a that I would like to repair. It has burnt up wiring, and I'd like to find a wiring circuit diagram, schematic or ANY kind of electrical drawing, comple



These were very simple and sturdy soldering guns [I still have 5 or 6 of them in various sizes] They basically have a transformer wired so that the heating part is basically a short circuit of the large low voltage secondary winding [very low voltage] and because the tip is higher resistance than the rest of the heat producing end, it gets hotter sooner. The secondary is just a single loop of the tube that holds the tip. Usually the only maintenance is to loosen and re-tighten the tip mounting nuts so that there is a good electrical connection [no connection = no heat; poor connection = poor heat]
There may be another small secondary winding that provides power to the light but I think the older ones just attached the lighting wires to the large secondary.
The primary [line voltage] winding of the transformer is switched such that the higher wattage powers the lesser resistance part of the winding and the lower wattage powers the higher resistance part of the same winding. In other words there is a single wire for the primary that has a tap near one end of the winding for dual heat.
If the two windings to the switch are mixed up the higher heat will just be at a different trigger position; if you don't like it, switch them around.

Also check the connection to the non-switched wire from the cord for a good connection. The switches are still available, at least for the newer models; do a google search for

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.

The tip of my weller 200D soldering iron was replaced about a month ago. I have just plugged it in to use it and it is not getting hot anymore.


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.

Weller model 550PK heavy-duty soldering gun is slow to heat up


It depends on what you say is slow, I have used weller soldering guns and desoldering guns for about 30 years. They come up to top heat in about 3min. If it is taking longer than that then there is a problem with the heating unit. You can call weller tech help number, should be on iron base and they can tell you how to test the heat unit.
