Question about Sunbeam 4214 Iron

1 Answer

I'm having a problem with the auto shut off of my sunbeam 421A series iron. The iron works great until the auto shut off comes on and the red light starts blinking. I understand that the iron should start working again if you move it or continue to use it but in this case, the red light continues to blink and the iron effectively shuts itself off. The only way to get it going again is to unplug, wait until it cools off and then start over. My problem is similar. It heats to the desired level, then immediately shuts off. It will not stay at the desired heating level.

Unless you have a 5 or 6 hundred dollar iron, or unless it is brand new, and still under warranty, there is an excellent rule of thumb when an iron quits working: Buy a new one! These days, irons can be purchased cheaply enough that it is WELL worth the money. Not just for the convenience, but for the safety issues. This is an appliance that could burn your house down even if it's in PROPER working order. Hope this helps!!

The electrical cord seems to have come loose near the iron itself causing the iron to shut off. is this a known problem & how do you fix it?


This has been happening since the first cord was attached to the first electric iron. The cord takes a beating. You will have to disassemble the handle and fix it ... or get a replacement.

Sunbeam Electric Blanket Model 972 A5 Type 692 (or 592) with temperature control 1 to 9 with 75 mins and 12 hrs and off control positions. The light blinks red and the blanket won't heat up. Please...


Did you get helped last year? If so please ignore. Otherwise....

Hi. You can locate a Sunbeam Service Centre via http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/Repairers.aspx

You're looking at $69,95 recommended retail.

BTW have you checked that it's not the blanket? Swap the controls over, if the problem follows the control it's the control. If the problem stays on the same side of the blanket, it's the blanket.

Also note Sunbeam has a 3 year warranty on electric blankets. If Date Of Purchase is less than 3 years ago call 1800025059 option 1 to speak to their Customer Service,
