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.
