Check the power on the label of the iron, usually 1kw or 1200W
Next open the plug, if it has a screw. The fuse inside the plug may be too low should be 13 Amps for an iron of 1KW

Check also whether there is a loose wire in the plug.

If not the take to an electrical repairer for a quote

2 year old iron lost power while ironing. Plugged it in to other working outlets. Light remains off.


It has defective parts, either the wire is open or the heating element also a defective plug cord.
It can be check by a continuity tester, if you have and knows how to use it.
If not, call or ask who has knowledge in appliance or electrical repair for assistance.
Thanks for asking.
