My iron does not heat up


The most likely cause is a faulty temperature sensor. The Iron is most likely shutting itself off because it believes that it is already at the correct heat. The less likely scenario would be a faulty heating element. In either case you will not be able to fix this yourself.
Check that the Iron is correctly plugged into a working outlet as that often tends to be the solution we all miss.

Tefal Pro Express GV 8120 Iron. New Iron - will not heat up and turn itself on. Green light just keeps flashing.


If it is a new iron, take it back to the dealer. Any attempt to repair or adjust on it will void the guarantee.

Auto shut off how to turn back on?


The automatic shut off is a protective device to let the iron cool down when not in use. Normally, if you pick the iron up and sit it down on the board or fabric, the iron will "sense" the motion and click back on to the heating cycle. To turn the iron off, just move the dial to the lowest position, or OFF and or unplug it from the outlet. If left unattended for a while, and when picking it back up to iron, if it does not come back on then you may need to increase the heat setting, move the dial a little, till you see the power light come back on. This is a safety item, and a good one, given the hectic lifestyles we have now, and having busy lives. If we forget to shut the iron off, it does it for itself after a period of non-use. No more trips to the store or wherever and remembering "I forgot to unplug/turn-off the iron I was using". Still, it's best to unplug and or turn it off when not in use. I prefer unplugging, so that it does not be a "vampire device" drawing even little amounts of current when not in use. And it's safest when unplugged and cool.

It shuts itself off


The SHARK ELECTRONIC Iron is equipped with an electronic auto-off. The electronic auto-off switches the iron off if it has been left standing unmoved in any position (sideways, flat or upright) for approximately 7-9 minutes. A red light on the LED display panel will flash when the iron switches itself off. (Fig. 7) To switch the iron back on, just shake the iron side-to-side several times.

The black and decker iron wont heat up


It probably has a high temp overload opened up inside or the thermostat control has gone bad.You can only tell for sure by taking the unit apart and testing the circuit for continuity.The steam feature on the iron is heated by the same element that heats the iron so it wont work.the element itself could also be bad,but I have never seen one go bad.You will have to check each component seperately to find the damaged part.or you can test the whole circuit at the plugs end,and use a jumper across each part until you have continuity through the unit.Make sure the thermostat is turned all the way up.the part that you are bypassing when you get continuity is the bad part.
You can buy a cheap continuity checker at any lowes,or even wallmart for that matter.
