What is this element compatible with?
If you already own one of our 48W soldering irons (Order Code BP53, N16CH and N34FB) and find that it is no longer heating up to full temperature, this heating element is an ideal replacement for you. Simply remove the tip from your soldering iron and uninstall the existing element before replacing it with this new one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I was somewhat disappointed that this replacement insert was not supplied with the crimps. This is annoying because the type of wire used does not take solder. Also no wiring instructions included in the kit. Fortunately I was able to salvage and re-use the crimps. (I know that this is not good practice but needs must) A small boot lace ferrule could be used here. This is the wiring info for use with N16CH Red on wire to blue on insert. Blue on wire to red on insert. Black on wire to solid core white on insert. White on wire to stranded core white on insert. Would have given 4 stars but lack of crimps knocks it down to a 3. Good luck!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not an easy replacement to fit. Ordered this product to replace my faulty heater element in my ZD-937 Precission Gold 24 volt, 48 Watt temperature controlled soldering station. As per previous reviews, no instructions, no crimps and wire colours do not match. The element came with four wires, red, blue and two white. They were connected as follows:- 1. Blue wire from heater element to red wire from station. 2. Red wire from heater element to blue wire from station. 3. White stranded white wire from heater element to white stranded wire from station. 4. White (single) strand wire from heater element to black wire from station. I tested all of these connections prior to making them permenant. I also had difficulty removing the old element from the metal surround and ended up just breaking it out with a screw driver. This is not a quick job and is rather tricky but got there in the end.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replacement element is faulty. Bought one of these a couple of years ago, no problems, needed another as the iron isn't heating up again, but the replacement's temp sensor stopped working after about 30 seconds of heat. Gone back to my 20+ year old iron, it just works.

I intend to replace my faulty heater element in my ZD-937 Precission Gold 24 volt, 48 Watt temperature controlled soldering station with this one, is it the correct replacement and can you confirm connections?

I noticed people complaining about the lack of crimps. Can you provide product codes for the necessary crimps for use with this item and the 48W soldering station (N34FB) ?

On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
