Posté le: Jeu 21 Déc - 10:59 (2017) Sujet du message: 25 W soldering iron not working properly?
I have a FULGORE soldering iron (quite an unknown brand, isn't it?) and I think it is not working properly but I would like to hear the opinion of experts.
The iron, as mentioned in the title, operates on a nominal power of 25 W, but I have found it quite difficult to use - I think it is not transferring enough heat to the parts to solder.
After letting the iron heat up for about a minute or so, I try to melt solder to the tip of my iron, and it is possible, it just takes a couple of seconds; it is a lot easier melting solder on the sides than on the thinnest part of the tip though.
But then, if for example I wanted to solder two wires together, I would put the tip in contact with either of the wires, and stick the solder wire to the joint, waiting for the wires to get hot enough to melt the solder. This takes forever though, with this iron.
What could be wrong with my iron? Is it perhaps the iron itself?
