Ed,,You need a temp gauge to verify tip temp and if it's a digital control iron and it's off usually just junk it. If dial control you can loosen knob and adjust to reading.If you need to know type of gauge and manufacturer drop me a line

It depends on the type of iron. Some of ours have a little plug you pull out that exposes a pot that you tweak to make the temperature of the tip the same as the reading. Others can't be adjusted and the heating element must be replaced if they don't match their set temperature.
