#3685 soldering iron stopped working

by grvrtr on Sun Oct 17, 2021 10:49 am

Hi, I ordered Ladyada's Electronics Toolkit recently and have used the soldering iron for a couple of short sessions (less than 30 minutes). Yesterday I plugged it in and even after 10 minutes, it was cool to the touch.

I'd like to get a replacement sent as soon as possible. I am in the middle of a project. Thanks.

Is the control lighting up at all when powered? Responding to button presses? etc?

It is. Lights come on, control responds to button presses. Just doesn't warm up, even after ~20 minutes.

OK, let's just replace it. Send another email to support@adafruit.com and link them back to this thread. They can send you a replacement PID 3685 soldering iron.
