Sounds like a wtcpt station, the 7 and 8 represent the temp in 100 %,eg 7 would be 700 and 8 800%.

The #7 indecate a operating temp. of 700°F

It is problay the thermostat contacts that needs burnishing, that should fix it so that you don't have to buy a new heater / thermostat. Their parts are expensive.

Do stained glass soldering tips go bad or stop working. I have a weller soldering iron that doesn't heat up hot enough to solder. is it the tip or the iron


If this is the dual trigger Weller gun and your tips are held in place by either set screws or by locking nuts, Just loosen both of the parts that are holding the tip to the gun and then retighten them back up. Soldering iron tips that appear to be tight might not be and this will insure that the tip is indeed tight and also cleans up the connection of the tip to the soldering iron. Oxidation from heating and cooling will cause a tip to not get very hot. Loosen the tip holder and then retighten it. Hope this gets you going again.

TIPS BURN OUT


It's better to get a soldering station instead.

After a few minutes of use, my WESD51 read out goes up to 902F but the tip is actually very cool (like 350F - 400F). If I put a load on the tip, it straightens out for a while, goes back to the set temp....


I was searching this and accidentally found the answer. Just for future reference, the issue with mine was the contacts between the station and the tip, where you have to lock it. Wiggling it would get rid of the error, so I looked at the contacts (the pins that go into it) and sure enough they were mildly corroded. I brushed them off a little bit and it worked fine. If I get a new tip, I'd look into something that prevents rust, possibly WD-40, to prolong the life.

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

I have a Weller 1002B soldering station. Haven't


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.

Does not melt solder


The body contains a transformer, which steps your 120AC down to a lower voltage. The lower voltage runs THROUGH the tip, heating it up. Possibility ONE: Transformer is no good, throw it away. TWO: Not enough current is running through tip, because tip is corroded OR those mounting nuts are corroded, loose, OR somebody put new tip into nuts but neglected to bend both legs of new tip 90 degrees. Look at the barrels, you will see little holes in the sides, tip's legs go into those holes.
