Sounds like main transformer is bad or bad connection. Unplug it and take it apart and check for loose connections. Good luck.

Try cleaning the tip contacts, where the tip screws onto the gun. They get tarnished and go high resistance.

If this is the dual trigger Weller gun and your tips are held in place by either set screws or by locking nuts, Just loosen both of the parts that are holding the tip to the gun and then retighten them back up. Soldering iron tips that appear to be tight might not be and this will insure that the tip is indeed tight and also cleans up the connection of the tip to the soldering iron. Oxidation from heating and cooling will cause a tip to not get very hot. Loosen the tip holder and then retighten it. Hope this gets you going again.

Unless you are only interested in soldering tin/lead joints... I sincerely believe that answer to be "No"...

What kind of metals were you planning on working with
would be a GREAT PLACE to start...

and the figure out the temperatures you will need to achieve..

A word of extreme CAUTION.

Working surfaces have to be able to withstand EXTREME TEMPERATURES.

Cement will come apart with explosive force... and getting any water onto molten metal can also have catastrophic consequences... so a little supervised experience would be well advised place to begin...

Take off the tip, clean the threads, and replace tightly.

don't waste you time trying to fix it as the coil windings are shot
they are an induced heat system where an immovable object ( soldering tip ) is held in the magnetic field created by the coils which because it cannot move heats up
