My iron turns on but will not heat up. Prior to that it smelled very hot. Can I purchase a new cord if that is the problem?


You probably could but, I doubt if that is the problem. It sounds like something has burnt up inside of it.

Why steam iron won't heat up


if there is no light or heat even when the thermostat is switched to the hottest setting then assumption is that the iron is defective.

with the iron not plugged in check the cable and see if it is worn or kinked or cut. look for any burn markings on the plug. if the iron is some years old it may also be that the element has burnt out. this happens more often in areas where water scale is high.


I hope this was useful.

Cannot get black stains off with the cleaner kit from Rowenta that I bough at Bed Bath and Beyond. Used almost all of the cream and still not clean. adjina39@aol.com


Are you heating up the soleplate first to get it really hot, then put on an oven mitt to protect your hand, squirt cream onto a folded pad of clean cotton fabric, then apply to iron sole plate, rub over stained area gently, wait, then rub off. you may want to rub the whole iron sole onto a piece of waste fabric to remove the burnt bits. Itcan take a couple of goes to clean. The ironing press cleaning sticks work well too.

Burning smell


thermal switch is not working...upon reaching a certain temperature limit it should switch off then switch on again after a moment to maintain the set temperature..what happened here is that your thermal switch didn't switch off so the temperature continue to rise to the extent that the heating element burnt and smell like that..adjust the setting in such a way that it switches off after reaching the desired temperature..

Black & Decker Iron - Steam Advantage - won't turn on


Just open your flat iron and locate the face plate contactor that has a soot burn causing the filament not to heat,use a sand paper to clean the contact from soot burnt,this the common problem of a flat iron...


Hope this may help;

How I can fix The Black&Decker digital advantage that does not heat


The iron will probably have to be taken apart.
If you are handy, you can do this when unplugged.
Check for broken connections and anything that is obvious like burned smell etc.
