I don't think temperatures are really comparable. I set mine to 300, but go much closer in the end. Also, the amount of air controls heat transport.

Yes, several things to take into account:
- Temperature
- Air speed
- Nozzel size.
- Distance from work
- Type of solder
- Mass of component.

I use a high intensity (15,000-30,000 Lux) light to monitor the melting solder for completion feedback.

The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Whew, I'm surprised that much light doesn't melt the solder  by itself ;)
