Hello!. W/D here.

Couple of things will get you going....forgive my being basic with my answers, I don't know how much you know.....

1. Too much gas: If you have plenty of gas in the cylinder, turn the valve down low to light the tip. Too high a gas flow will keep it from lighting.
2. Too little gas: The orifice may be partially plugged. You can purchase a tip cleaning kit at a welding supply house. Cheap. Sometimes they don't even charge for them. Use the tip cleaners to clean out the tip.
3. Bad cylinder: Sometimes, grit can get down into the cylinder screw-on fitting, and it just won't dispense gas worth a flip. I only include this item here as it will baffle the fool out of you when this is the case. But it's rare. Try a different cylinder if you suspect this.....
Best regards, --W/D--

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.

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.

Weller PSI-100K doesn't ignite. I have taken off the tips and checked. There is a spark and I can ignite it minus the tip. It only then stays ignited if I keep pressure on the ignition switch. Once that is...


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.

Bought mini butane soldering iron today filled with butane and used it. It was getting low so i put more butane in it and now i can light it. please help


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.

My Weller PSI100K Portasol soldering gun will not get hot at the tips, but it is producing heat at the vent holes?


It is supposed to produce heat there, it's the place where catalytic combustion takes place. If the tip doesn't heat up enough, it means that either the tip is not screwed properly into the housing, or there's not enough gas pressure. The catalytic mesh should be orange in color when heated properly.
Too low gas pressure may be a result of many things, like a malfunctioning valve (regulator and/or on/off),or clogging of the ceramic pressure reductor due to poor quality gas used, with high heavy fraction content.

Brand new Weller Mcm Magna Lite butane torch does not light


If this is an itty ***** torch, The fuel is very sensitive . Too much screws up the air fuel ratio so try turning it way down and after the tip has heated up, you can increase your flame. Good Luck, Ned
