Schematics

Step 1

Open the soldering iron Carefully. confirm you're not giving extra pressure to the Soldering tip. Otherwise, the Soldering Tip may Break.

Step 2

Here you'll see all the components from the soldering iron. Here you'll also see a Physically Damaged IC. This must be a Triac for voltage regulation. The circuit is like an LED Dimmer Circuit which I even have made previously.

Step 3

Then I removed the SMD Triac with a Hot Air Gun. If you don’t have this then you'll also use another soldering iron. for removing the Triac.

Step 4

Here you'll see it's written BT134. it's a Triac. So, My assumption was correct. this is often an SMD Component. In my local market, only THT components were available, SMD wasn't available. once I saw some datasheets then I find that BT136 is best than BT134. By the way, BT136 is widely available within the market at the lowest.

Step 5

Then I soldered the BT136 and put it to in its Enclosure. and eventually , the soldering iron is prepared to use.
