Our irons are known for their reliability, but even the best made products don’t last forever. It’s usually around the 10 to 15 year mark that the casual user will notice some dips in performance. Once this happens, you have a couple of options. You can send it to us for a rebuild, or purchase a rebuild kit and fix it yourself. If you’re looking to do the Iso-Tip rebuild yourself, then follow these steps:
- Remove the casing by pulling out the three screws holding it in place. Make sure to disassembly the case carefully.
- Unscrew the contact plate connecting the tip of the iron to the bulb. One of the tips will be attached to it. Take the contact plate and tip out of the iron.
- Remove the screw near the top of the battery that attaches the battery to the orange wire.
- Remove the screw near the bottom of the battery.
- Carefully remove the battery from the case.
- Remove the remaining components.
- Replace necessary parts.
- Reassemble by following these steps in reverse order.
It’s as easy as that! Our irons aren’t complicated, but it’s their simplicity that makes them easy to fix and maintain. If you’ve got any questions, be sure to contact us.

Hey there,my neighbor gave me a iso- tip 7500,it’s like brand new but it doesn’t work,I suspect it’s the battery.Can this can be fixed and if so what do I need to do to make it work.I have a corded one but I don,t like it,this cordless style is the best. Please let me know what to do. Thanks Dave
More often than not a new battery will made an old iron right as rain. Have you had a chance to take it apart and look inside? We sell a replacement battery on our website, but sometimes the battery leaks and causes damage to other internal components.
Can you send or add a close up picture of a correctly wired terminal/battery area in the back of the Isotip 7700? The part that rests on the charger. Your drawings above are just a little hard to see. I’m trying to wire an older “orange” model with the replacement battery. The welded terminals on the battery didn’t seem to be in the right place. When I first put it in, it worked for many minutes (wasn’t completely exhausted). Was happy. However, I put it on the charger and now it doesn’t. maybe I didn’t quite wire it properly to be able to charge. Thanks.
