Question about DeLonghi Stiromeglio Compact PRO 300 Iron

1 Answer

My iron exploded when I plugged it in. How can it be fixed?

My delonghi iron had a sort of internal explosion when i plugged it in (both the power and steam switches were already on, but it has never done this before). Now it makes a little smoke and smells of burnt. I filled it with water, but if I switch it on it still makes that sound like there is a small explosion inside. Can it be fixed? How? When I first plugged it in, the tank part kind of lighted up.

You have a short in the wiring inside of the iron. It will not work until you get the short fixed.

Won't. Iron won't turn on when plugged in


Is the wall outlet breaker tripped? Try plugin a light into the outlet to make sure power is there. If outlet OK, try another known good cord going to the iron. If it still won't go one problem is with the internal parts of the iron.

Heat element light comes on (so there is power) but the iron will not hear up


The Delonghi Pro300 has two thermostats that contact the boiler. One is a low temperature thermostat that allows the boiler to heat up to 145 degrees (F). The other turns off the boiler when the temperature reaches 180 degrees. It sounds like your low temperature thermostat has failed. The part can be ordered on line. You need to have good basic mechanical skills and the proper sized star screwdriver to replace it.

Iron plug


Bit more information would be handy? whats wrong with the plug? is there just no power going to the iron? have you tried replacing the fuse? have you tried taking the wires out and making sure there is a strong connection between the wires and the screws? if your iron isnt turning on it may not even be a problem with the plug. it could be an issue with the motherboard in the iron

I have a 4045 model iron, extremely happy with it. Recently, when I plug in the iron the light goes on but it does not heat up at all. Any way to fix it or is it busted. Suggestions would be appreciated.



Hi,

Heatman101 posted this on the site......

"If you go to use your Electric Iron and it does not work you may be wondering what could have gone wrong. Actually there are only a few things that can go wrong with this handy little appliance.

The first thing to check is to make sure that you actually have electric power getting to the steam iron. Many times the problem is simply caused by a tripped circuit breaker, a faulty outlet, a worn or broken plug on the end of the cord, or in some cases, a fuse that is in the plug. Another common problem is for the cord of the clothing iron to break at the point where it enters the handle of the iron. By checking that you have power actually getting to the internal parts of the electric iron, you eliminate one set of common problems.

Next you need to check that the power is getting to the heating element. For the power to get to the heating elements of the iron it needs to go through the power switch and the thermostat. On some irons the power switch will be included in the iron thermostat and on others the on/off switch will be a separate switch. In either case you will need to make sure that there is continuity, or the ability for the power to flow through the switch and thermostat to get to the heating part of the iron. The thermostat is just an on/off switch that works on the temperature of the base of the iron. So whenever the iron is cold the thermostat should be closed, allowing the power to flow through it.

If the power can get to the heating element of the iron, then it should get hot. If it is not, then the heating part has failed. Sometimes, when this happens it will short out and cause the fuse to blow or the circuit breaker to trip. Many times though, the element will just simply burn out or break so that the circuit is open and the electricity cannot flow through to make the element produce heat.

If your iron is getting too hot or not hot enough then the problem will almost always be in the thermostat. Sometimes it may be a simple thermostat calibration problem, but it also can be that the thermostat simply will not work properly anymore.

This should give you a basic troubleshooting guide for home electric irons and steam irons. As you can see, there are not many parts that can fail and troubleshooting the few parts that can fail, is relatively simple with a basic electric meter."

Sounds like either power isn't getting to the heating element, or the element is bad.

Good Luck

I GET NO HEAT IT JUST STOPPED


U got a busted thermal fuse or the thermostat switch is not functioning.

If u have a knowhow in replacing and adjusting the thermal switch, u could fix it by urself!

Better check also the power cord, mostly flat irons main prob, if there are no lights on ur iron, it means internal probs!

Better take that iron in ur friendly hungry technician to fix that!

Simac Steam Generator descaled incorrectly.


I don't think you can recover the iron. You could try to return the item !!!! but I don;t think that you will have much luck because of the incorrect descaling
