Operation Details

This is one of the better videos about soldering:

It is easy to mess up the temperature calibration on these soldering stations. Here is the undocumented factory reset procedure to fix them:

Instructions from the above video, and updated from this Adafruit forum thread:

  • Press and hold Up and Enter buttons, then turn station on
  • Continue holding until display flashes 'A'
  • For Celsius, press Enter
  • For Fahrenheit, press Up (display should flash 'U') then press Enter

The soldering station should now return to normal operation, with factory calibration.
