Ungar 9000 soldering station issue


Im repairing some of the soldering stations Ive got in my electronics
shop..and Ive go a minty but non working Ungar 9000 unit that I cant
find any info on.
I was given this unit best as I can recall because it wasnt working
(stroke moment) I think the controller is working properly..but I think
the issue is in the iron itself.
Anyone remember this unit or have a link? Coopertools bought them out
years ago, and I cant find any information on the Ungar stuff at all.
This unit has low/high ranges with a pair of verticle rows of LEDs that
show the tip temp. (pics available if need be)
Anyone got a data source?

Looks like the 9000 on that page btw. (last updated, 2003)

I thing that Ungar was acquired by Weller, which is now part of the Cooper Tools group. Weller is very good about supplying repair parts for old Weller equipment. Perhaps they feel the same about Ungar equipment.

I have to repair the Weller solder stations that we have. The cord/ wire will break right where it enters the hand piece. The repair lasts 2-3 years of heavy use. By the time they have been repaired a couple of times, the cord is too short and we toss the hand piece.
Once you disassemble the hand piece, you will see how to use the remaining good cord and splice into the original wiring.
This will not work for the 20 watt hand pieces. There is not enough room in them to splice in new wires.

I have yet to see a soldering iron circuit that is complicated, what tests have you run to isolate the problem? what is the status of the thermistor, the triac control and the heater?

Joe, you need to look at the RF heated soldering irons.

I get repair parts for Weller electronically-controlled irons from Newark, I think. Most of the special parts are not catalog items, but can now be found by searching in their online catalog. I have bought a heating element, several temperature sensors and a cord set for the ECP1302 series of irons. I can't say if they have the same level of repair parts for the Ungar line.

Or air. A lot of work is done with air to put on and take off.
We had RF irons - very nice ones - and a heat gun with lots of fixtures.

When you take off the tip, there is a busted white Ceramic mini popsicle stick sticking out of the back of the heater.

Yup! That is the heating element. Need to replace all the innards, or easier to replace the whole hand piece.

I took it, a big Weller staion Id fixed and a Hardinge tapping head Id fixed for a buddy in So. Cal down to my buddy yesterday and gave them to him. Perhaps I should have kept the Ungar..but the sparcity of information and parts made it simply not worthwhile for me to hang on to it.

No doubt the RF irons are nice, but what's the relevance? Gunner has the broken iron he has, an Ungar 9000.
