Trying to take apart my Panasonic NI-A56NR iron

Have the base completely apart, but something is still holding it together near the point of the soleplate. Cannot see what is holding it. A trick to releasing it? Thank you

first test your heating element to see if it is working.
You can by pass the control module by removing it from the line. Just disconnect all wires that goes to the module and put aside, then, connect back lead to the far right connection and white wire to the third connection from the left. Be careful playing with electricity is hazardous to yout health if you don't know what you are doing.

Try a "magic eraser". They're minimally abrasive. Then run the iron over a piece of waxed paper and then on a cotton cloth or rag.

Not heating what will be the problem


if it is not heating up -- the problem could be a few things,, it could be a bad cord / connection ( at the iron side or at the plug side ),, it could be a bad switch ,, or it could be a burned out heating element. if you have a volt meter ( or know someone that does ) - you can do a few test to the wiring and see what the trouble is.
if you need further help -- please feel free to write me back here and I will walk you through the steps the best way that I can. but if you do not have a volt meter - then just drop it off at your local small appliance repair shop and for a small price I am sure they can fix it quickly -- if it is just a loose wire or bad plug - the cost will be about 10 to 15 dollars ( depending on where you live ).

Panaonic NI-R73NR Iron suddenly stopped working. Uses a small PCB with OEG PCD-124D2M relay which produces a sound when shaken as if some metal item is moving inside. Can this PCB be entirely replaced? Is...


Okay, here's what fixed mine. But first, understand this is a $23 iron and it may not be worth your effort. I'm an engineer and like fixing things, and I hate throwing stuff into the landfill, so I took the time to repair mine. If you can use a screwdriver and are good at taking things apart (and putting them back together) this will take less than an hour. NOTE: I often make use of a digital camera while taking things apart. Take a picture of things as you go, so you can see how to put them back together later.

The problem is the switch is corroded, from oxidation or carbon buildup, or both. Getting to it is most of the trouble. Follow these instructions:
1. Unplug the iron (helpful hint for the simple-minded. Can't iron if you're dead.) Dump out any water that's in it.
2. Remove two phillips-head screws from bottom of cord winder at base of iron.
3. Pull cord winder housing away from iron to expose electrical wiring.
4. Remove the small gray insulator card from it's slot to expose the screws that attach all the wires.
5. A red, blue, and black wire go up into the handle and attach to the shut-off circuit board. Tug on them gently to slide the circuit board out of the handle, remembering which side is up.
6. There's a screw inside the handle. Look where the circuit card came out and you'll see it in there. Use a screwdriver to remove it. Now you can lift up on the back of the small curved cover where the steam and squirt buttons are, and it will come off. Don't lose the steam setting button, it may fall off.
7. Now you can see the water jet nozzle. Lift it out of the way to find a screw under there. Take that screw out. I call this screw #1 for a reason.
8. There are three screws in the back of the iron, near the wires. They hold the iron together. Left and right are like screw #1. Take them out. The other one is a machine screw that's in the center, going down into the base. Take it out.
9. You can now lift the plastic part of the iron up off the metal part and set it aside. On top of the black plastic where screw #1 went through, near the pointy end of the iron, there should be a small washer. Locate it and set it aside. You'll want to make sure it gets back where it belongs when you reassemble.
10. There is a lamp that turns on when the iron is heating. It has two fine bare wires, a copper one (on the right if the iron is lying flat and you're looking at the base), and a silver one to the left. Find the screw where the silver one attaches and loosen that screw. Gently pull that wire off the screw. Note the routing of that silver wire around the black plastic, including where the tube insulator on the wire lays-- you will need to put this back right later. Lift the lamp out and the silver wire so it's more or less sticking up in line with the screw where the copper wire attaches. This will facilitate the next step.
11. Separate the black plastic cover from the brass-colored metal iron base by lifting at the pointy end of the iron. The wires will try to hang you up in the back, but if you wiggle things just right you'll be able to get them mostly separated. The lamp will need to descend down through the black plastic where the wires go as you lift the plastic cover off. As you lift it off, look inside. You can see where the rotary switch is inside there.
12. So here's the deal: the rotary switch controls a thermostatic set of contacts. This means there's metal in there that bends as it gets hot; the hotter, the more it bends. This controls your iron's temperature. When it bends enough, it opens a set of "points", which are tiny cylindrical contacts at the bottom of the rotary switch mechanism. Put on your glasses and look under the mechanism as you rotate the rotary control and you'll see them click open and closed. You need to clean them.
13. Get a small strip of fine sandpaper (400 grit or finer), about 1/4" wide and 2" long. Turn the control until the points are open and slip the sandpaper in between them. Now turn the switch the other way to get the points to close on the sandpaper. Pull the sandpaper back and forth between the points; that'll clean the contact on the gritty side of the paper. Now open the points again, pull the sandpaper out, flip it over, put it back in, and close the points. Now another few pulls on the paper to clean the other contact.
14.Remove the sandpaper. Put the iron back together in reverse order. Some things to watch out for: When you put the black plastic part back down onto the metal iron base, you'll need to make sure the wires and the lamp go the right way. You also need to make sure that the grey rubber grommet that lets water from the plastic tank down into the heated elements is properly pushed up through the hole in the black plastic. If you have trouble seating the black plastic onto the metal iron base, it's probably because that grommet is stuck halfway through the hole. Make sure you put the steam selector button back where it goes before you put the curved cover onto the top of the plastic tank. Getting the screw up through the hollow handle and into the hole it goes into can be tricky. I held the phillips screwdriver point-up and set the screw on top. Then I held the iron point-up and slowly put the screw up through the handle and into the hole. This might take a couple of tries; be patient-- you'll get it. Be sure to put the circuit card back into the handle the right way. Finally, be VERY SURE to route the lamp wires through the plastic parts correctly, and also make sure that you have correctly routed the red, blue, and black wires from the circuit card correctly before you re-install the cord winder housing.

Good luck!

It not turn on.


If u could open the internal part and check the THERMOSTAT and the THERMAL.
That usually the problem w/ FLAT iRONS!
Might as well check ur power cord too, it might have some internal cut wires in it, use ur multi tester to test the current continuty!
If u don't know how to OPEN it, u might as well, bring that to the nearest service center!

Panasonic Iron won't heat


most iron cases can not be seperated from the iron plate but, if you can take off the bottom plate you will see a heating element and attached to that a small cylinder it has a point on one side and a flat end on the other it is called a thermal fuse and radioshack sells them
they are made in different versions so take the fuse in to get the right one clip it back in and your iron should work again
