Question about Cooper Industries Weller Soldering Iron, Slim, for WES51, Uses Eta Tips

1 Answer

I have two WU81 Weller soldering irons and their are both showing the same fault. When we turn the irons on in the morning, the 500mA fuse that can be found in the base unit is blowing. Is this a common fault with this type of iron?

Perhaps this fuse should be a "T" type or delayed acting (antisurge fuse) . If the fuse has been replaced by an "F" fast acting fuse then this could explain why they are blowing.

You may have a broken wire in the temp sensor in the tip of the iron or near where the iron connects to the base.
