1. Keep your work area in proper order. Always return the soldering tool to its original holder when not in use. Do not bring combustible materials near the hot soldering tools.

  2. Be aware of your surroundings. Don't use the soldering tool in a moist or wet environment.

  3. Protect yourself against electrical shocks. Avoid touching grounded parts with your body, e.g. pipes, heating radiators, stoves or refrigerators.

  4. Keep children at a distance. Don't allow children to touch or disturb the soldering tool or cord. Keep children away from your work area.

  5. Store your soldering tool in an appropriate place. Unused soldering tools should be stored in a dry location which is out of the reach of children (some place high or in a locked cabinet). Switch off all unused soldering tools.

  6. Do not overload your soldering tool. Use the soldering tool only with the specified voltage or specified pressure range.

  7. Use the appropriate soldering tool. Don't use a soldering tool whose performance is not adequate for your work. Never use the soldering tool for purposes for which it was not designed.

  8. Wear suitable work clothes. There is a danger of burning yourself with liquid solder. Wear the corresponding protective clothing in order to protect yourself against burns.

  9. Protect your eyes. Wear protective eye wear. When working with bonding agents, it is particularly important to observe the warning notices of the bonding agent manufacturer. Protect yourself against spattering solder. There is a danger of burning yourself with liquid solder.

  10. Use a soldering vapor suction device. If devices for solder vapor suction is available, ensure that these are connected and correctly used.

  11. Do not use the cord for purposes for which it is not designed. Never carry the soldering tool by the cord. Don't use the cord to pull the power plug from the socket. Protect the cord from heat, oil and sharp edges.

  12. Protect the work piece. Use clamping devices to hold the work in place. This is more secure than using your hands, and leaves both hands free to work with the soldering tool.

  13. Avoid abnormal posture. Arrange your workplace with proper ergonomics. Avoid bad posture when working. Always use the suitable soldering tool.

  14. Take care of your soldering tool. Keep the soldering tool clean for better and safer work. Follow the maintenance instructions and the notices concerning changing the soldering tips. Regularly inspect all connected cords and hoses. Repairs should only be carried out by a qualified technician. Use only original WELLER replacement parts.

  15. Remove the power plug from the socket before opening the unit.

  16. Remove all maintenance tools. Before switching on the unit, check that all maintenance tools have been removed from the unit.

  17. Avoid unexpected operation. Make sure that the power switch is turned off when inserting the plug into the socket or connecting to power. Don't hold a soldering tool which is connected to a power supply while touching the power switch.

  18. Pay attention. Be careful of what you do. Work with caution. Don't use the soldering tool if you are not concentrating on your work.

  19. Inspect the soldering tool for any damage. Before further use of the soldering tool, safety devices or slightly damaged parts must be carefully checked for error-free and intended operation. Inspect moving parts for error-free operation and that they don't bind, or whether any parts are damaged. All parts must be properly mounted and all requirements fulfilled for guaranteed error-free operation of the soldering tool. Damaged safety devices and parts must be repaired or replaced by a qualified technician, so long as nothing else is indicated in the Operation Manual.

  20. Attention! Use only accessories or attachments which are listed in the accessories list of the Operation Manual. Use only WELLER accessories or attachments on original WELLER equipment. Use of other tools and other accessories can lead to injury.

  21. Repairs to your soldering tool should be performed by a qualified technician. This soldering tool is in accordance with the relevant safety regulations. Repairs should only be carried out by a qualified electrician using original WELLER replacement parts. Failure to do so can lead to accidents for the operator.

  22. Do not work on electrically live parts. The grip of anti-static designed soldering tools is conductive.

  23. Applications with other WELLER equipment. If the soldering tool is to be used together with other WELLER equipment and attachments, also observe the warning notices given in the corresponding Operation Manual.
