Hakko 936 ceramic heater A1321


Posted on Feb 5, 2014

Crap, the sensor on my clone is low resistance and the replacement heater is 45 Ohms. Is there anywhere you can buy the clone heaters or modify the station to accomodate the genuine heater Going home for the holiday week but the circuit inside last I looked was pretty basic, might be possible to swap some resistors and re-cal it for the new heate

r No clue what the official circuit looks like so maybe it`s not so simple. Crap, the sensor on my clone is low resistance and the replacement heater is 45 Ohms.

I just want to add my findings to the "Grade Fail" heater. They are not fake they are just cheap clones that are NOT to be used with Hakko 936 stations. Electrically incompatible with the Hakko. They are actually Nichrome coil winding heaters and covered with a ceramic sleeve. These heaters are prone to breakage especially at the tip. And they don`t like to be over driven, any more than 24vac it will be broken. I have seen numerous types where the coil length is different. So they perform drastic different. If you have this type of heaters, avoid at all cost. They are at the bottom food chain, it will actually cost you more in the long term, despite their cost. You can buy a clone Hakko control board and `upgrade` your station along with those clone heating elements. There is another type of stainless metal sleeve heating element. It is made in Taiwan, it is compatible with those Nichrome winding ceramic heaters. These stainless...
