Weller DS701E soldering-desoldering station repair

Posted on Wednesday, January 30th, 2013 in repair, Teardowns by DP


Gelbanana had some free time on his hands and he decided to try and repair an old Weller DS701E soldering-desoldering station he had laying around. The problem was diagnosed to a couple of bad capacitors. After a quick replacement, the station started working as expected, with the exception of the desoldering iron heater.

While waiting for ebay parts to arrive for my DC load project, I thought of having a go at attempting to fix the Weller DS701E solder/desolder station which I’ve gotten it a while back. I have no idea when this model was produced and googling for datasheets and manual comes back with nothing.
