The end of the tip is completely gone, only the copper in the handle is left in my Weller Isolated-model W-TCP any hope of getting it out, does it screw in or is it pressed in and how far. I am a machinist if you tell me I may be able to make something to get it out

    Well I did get the sleeve of the iron as you stated but the copper tip is still stuck in the iron, could you tell me if this tip is threaded or is it just a slip fit.

The barrel to the soldering iron has a nut on it and the nut unscrews and the whole barrel comes off. The tip then comes out of the barrel.

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

Wont heat enough to solder

Hello, does your solder iron --Weller- humming? Also, is the solder tips the right tips for you Weller woldering gun? Are the tips tightened on the end of the solder gun prongs?

Well, if it is humming there is internal short in the windings inside of the gun. Don't mess with. Recyle it by taking the copper, brass, aluminum, and other metal out. Now, if it is not humming.
Make sure you have right tips, make sure that the tip is tightened in the soldering gun prongs.

The working principal of these soldering guns is that they work on low voltage and very high current. The current is regulated to keep the tip from burning into. Just enough current to heat the tipe to a certain temperature.. It can shock you but there not enough voltage with current but it will hurt. and could burn you. Be careful and lots of luck...GB...stewbison

Iron does not get hot enough melt solder. it used to. can I fix it?

try reshaping the tip to a dull point with a file or grinder. Then heat it up and apply solder onto the bare copper tip coating it completely. you can clean the excess off with a wet sponge. This is called "Tinning" tthe tip.

Good Luck!

How do you use an weller wsb25hk change tips?

Hello, just loosen the set screws on the end of the soldering gun barrels. Install new tips and tighten the set screw--sung! If your soldering iron requires that the tips have a 90 degree angle on their ends. You can bend them but be very careful because you can break them end off. The tipes are made of copper with some other alloys and the are kinda brittle. You can do. GB...stewbison

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.

I just plugged in my new weller 8200pk soldering gun and the tip bubbled up. doesnt seem normal, what is wrong? its the tip it came with.

Was it copper that bubbled up or just some kind of covering? If the latter, just scrape off the residue, then tin the tip as normal. If it was the first, it would have been a flaw in the copper--just replace the tip with a new one. It's hardly worth trying to get warranty on it. Hope this helps!

How do i use this product(Weller model Standard 7200)?

You need the nuts that hold the tip in the iron--slide them on, then bend the ends sideways with pliers and leave about 1/4" sticking out sideways. Be sure to make the upper and lower bends in the same direction. Be sure to tin the new tip with solder when you first heat the tip. Hope this helps!

Intermittent heat on Weller D550 although lights stay on. When not working, moving the terminals may get it to start working again. Sometimes, just moving the gun will interrupt the heat. Continuity...

Heat gun tips often get bad electrical connection where the nuts tighten to the tip ends. Remove the tip, clean the ends, re-install the tip, making sure the nuts TIGHTEN onto the tip ends. Your problem is common and always caused by a poor connection at the tip ends/nuts.
