Question about Garden

Open Question

The flame keeps going out when I light the Butane soldering iron. I have read the instructions. It lights, but when I release the top part (iron) and it slides back it goes out. Fuel is good. It works great without the soldering tip attached. What's going on?

SOURCE: Iron heating sporadically and sensor lights working sporadically

sounds like a loose connection in the power transfer, some piece of metal may be broken or the cord itself may be damaged in some place, you could try replacing the cord. I would just go and buy a new iron. They aren't all that expensive anymore. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I hope you solve your problem. If you want any further help or have any other questions, please let me know, otherwise have a Good Day.

Replace the thermocouple.

Thats the flame sensor.

If the gas valve is not sensing flame it will not stay lit.

T-couple's are about 9 bucks.

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.

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.

to solder brass u just use regular solid solder with a tin of acid flux, but u must use a Small butane fueled pin torch or a large high temperature solder iron to do the heating (this really depends on the size of the material being soldered), the brass must be clean and bright, use steel wool for this these small torches are available from any hardware store, they fuel up with butane cartridges used for refilling cigarette lighters

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
