The iron is still working but the water not hot


There is most likely a build-up of minerals around the steam holes. Minerals are in ordinary tap water. The coat the heating surfaces, act like an insulator and prevent iron from getting hot. Clean the hot plate with a fine needle or other fine object and then put in a mixture of vinegar and water and let it steam out. To prevent future mineral build-up, use half distilled water and half tap water. If you can't get distilled water, use ordinary drinking water you can buy from your supermarket (it also cheaper). Don't use 'all' distilled water as it boils (steams) at higher temperature and could ruin your iron. Good luck.

No steam coming throwc


Normally when water is put inside steam irons, it get stored in tank then if thermostat knob is set for steam then water moves to bottom heated portion of iron. Water converts to steam as base plate is hot, heated steam comes out through perforated holes. If holes are blocked due to scale formation steam flow is blocked. The descaling has to be done as per instructions given on descaling wax manufacturer. sometimes if water does not enter through a rubber washer that is water tank to heated bottom portion then also steam will not get generated hence no steam. Please check above points and identify the problem.

My Conair Proshine Straightner won't warm up, although the light is on. How do I fix this? ... hot plates not heating and the light says its warming up but the hot plates won't heat up


Most heated hair appliances are protected by a thermistor that will fail if overheated. These are small, about 1/2" long, cylindrical in shape with a pointy end and a wire coming from each end. When they go bad, they do not conduct electricity (zero ohms on a meter). There is a three digit number on the side that is the shutoff temperature. You can get these at Radio Shack.

Don't bypass this safety device.

Sole plate leaking


This IS a steam iron? The iron must be hot for the steam to form. If it's not hot enough, the water is leaking thru the steam holes. Also if the channels are calsified (boiler stone has formed into the steam channels) this may happen.

Just pumps water through the sole plate and no steam


Is the iron getting hot at all ?
If it is not, then there is an electrical fault - Heating element blown / fuse blown / bad connection / thermostat device defective.

If it is getting hot, then check the water flow control - as this may be defective or badly sealed.

Light comes on, but iron will not heat up


Like what was posted before, the cause of the iron lights is on but the heaters are not hot is because either your heater connection is melted or rusted due to water seepage(steam irons). The lights power supply are tapped parallel to the heater supply thus lights is on. Solution is to dismantle the iron to replace the connectors or cables. Though not all iron is easy to dismantle
