BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
PROBLEM 1: THE UNIT HAS NO POWER /MAIN POWER LED DOES
NOT LIGHT UP
1.
Check if the unit is switched ON.
2.
Check the fuse. Replace with the same type of fuse if blown.
3.
Check the power cord and make sure there are no disconnections.
4.
Verify that the unit is properly connected to the power source.
PROBLEM 2: SOLDERING IRON DOES NOT RISE IN TEMPERATURE
Description: Main power LED lights up and so does the heater LED but soldering iron temperature is relative low and is not heating up.
Initial Setup
Soldering Iron
1. Install the solder wire to the soldering iron holder as seen.
2. Connect the soldering iron cord assembly to the 6-pin output terminal
found at the lower middle portion of the main unit.
3. Place the soldering iron to the soldering iron stand as shown above.
4. Dampen the sponge and place into sponge tray.
SOLUTION:
Soldering iron cord may be damaged and needs to be replaced or
repaired.
Heating element may be damaged and needs to be replaced

CARE and MAINTENANCE
After cleaning, coat tip with a thin layer of solder and set it
If the tip shows disfiguration or has rust on it. Change the tip.
Calibrating the Tip Temperature
1.
Plug in station and turn it on.
2.
Set temperature to 400°C (750°F)

Checking, Cleaning and Tinning the Tip
Adjust until the external sensor reads 400°C (750°F).
Maintain a thin layer or solder over the tip when iron is not being
used. This maintains the tinning on the tip, and the tip will last
much longer.
