    Hello,

    I bought about year ago Hakko FX888D. Never used it until now. I set it to Celsius and when I turn it in, it produces very very low heat that even not enough to leave marks on wood. Does anyone have an idea what can be wrong? Is it a station or the iron it self?

    Thanks in advanced

    Ok check the ohm readings on the heating element and temp sensor ?¿?
    Also check for loose and high ohm or a shorted wire ..
