So you need to replace the soldering iron on your Atten 8502D Soldering Station. You could just buy the heating element, but you can find a complete soldering iron with cable for less than $12 on eBay, or for a little more on Amazon. So It’s easier just to replace the whole thing.

I have ordered replacement irons before (I’m very rough with my soldering station) just to find out that they don’t work. You get the dreaded S-E or H-E message on display and, obviously, something is wrong. What do you do now? Read on to find out.
