End of soldering tips not hot

I’m using Aoyoue 888A.

I have problem where the tips not able to melt the solder iron.
I have change to new tips which i never use, but problem still there.
Only end of the tips not able to melt the solder iron, but the surrounding tips are okay.

Please advice.

Hello user4,

Thank you for your inquiry. When a solder pencil heats up but the tip does not, this usually indicates the tip is oxidized, incorrect, or loose. Depending on the age of the pen, it could be the inside of the pen which then may need to be cleaned or replaced.
