Trying to solder components that haven’t been cleaned properly will result in weak connections. If the tip if the gun is not cleaned correctly, oxidation and deterioration may occur. Periodically running a lightly moistened cloth across the soldering gun during a lengthy work session is the best way to ensure crisp connections. However, you can also purchase special sponges and cleaning pads to care for your soldering gun.

My Dremel Versatip wont melt the solder - it gets hot, as I touched it to a piece of paper and it burned through, but why wont the solder melt?


Christina, It's probably dirty, and dirt is lousy for transferring the heat from the tip to the solder. With the iron hot, wipe it on a wet rag. This should immediately remove the black crud and make the tip shiny. Keep a wet rag handy to do this often if you are soldering for more than a couple of minutes. If the crud is too bad, you can use a bit of soldering flux on the tip, then the wet rag. If that doesn't work, you can file the tip (easiest when it's cool) until you have copper showing all around the tip. Please vote if you found this helpful. Good luck, Al K
