SOURCE: I have several "Chi" Flat irons that no longer

When the flat iron does not heat up, it is usually the ceramic fuse that is located under one of the heating elements. I fixed my daughter;s CHI flat iron for $1.97 with a ceramic fuse I bought at Radio Shack.

What could be rattling inside the hand held shower head


It sounds like the flow restrictor may have come loose and be rattling around in their. There is no way to open that shower head that I am aware of. If it really bothers you, buy new one.

First use today,heated up at first go,then wouldn't heat up again??


Are you plugin it into the same wall outlet as you did the first time, and is it on a GFCI circuit? Check the outlet for power first, or try another outlet. if there is power, check continuity of the iron at the cord plug.No continuity, open fuse/cicruit inside unit, or burned element, you will need to open it up to troubleshoot it further.

if has power go to 3.
3.open the back of your electric iron, the end of the cord or plug. then try to check the continuity of two wires if any is open. if its open or no continuity replace the cord or plug, either cut the only open wires and reconnect it again.
4. Or check the heating element of your electric iron if no resistance replace the heating element or you buy a new one.

I have a kalorik heart shaped waffle maker and on the first use, after the first waffle, the waffle iron stopped working. i was wondering if there was something i could do to reset it or if i should just...


Check the outlet that it was plugged into. If you used it in a kitchen it may have been plugged into a GFI outlet (Ground Fault Interrupter). If the safety device in the outlet failed, or there was more than one heating type appliance used on the outlet or a standard wall outlet. Then you may have simply triggered the circuit breaker that addresses this device. For example, If you had the coffee maker on, or the toaster, or the microwave oven on. Using an additional appliance would pop the breaker.
Here are the possible solutions. TRY your waffle maker in another outlet. If it was plugged into a GFI wall outlet, then find the "reset button" on the outlet and push it. If it clicks, it means that it had tripped. NOW HERE IS AN IMPORTANT POINT TO FOLLOW. If you reset the GFI and plug in the Waffle Maker, then turn it on and the outlet pops off. there is a wiring defect in the waffle Iron.
If you don't have a GFI and you plug the waffle iron into a standard outlet and turn it on and it trips the breaker, then same thing. A defect in the Waffle Iron. Now if you plug the waffle iron into a good circuit and it works again. Then it was a matter of the outlet being overloaded by too many small appliances.
Very common problem. Not serious. Just reset the breaker. Or if it's a fuse, replace it.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Wont turn on


I agree.

It is probably a loose screw (if you shake the iron, you may hear it rattle).. The iron is most likely good, just needs a 5 minute repair.

If you want to do it, or find someone to do it:
1. UNPLUG the iron.
2. remove the 4 screws from the back end of the iron.
3. Open the back plastic plate.
4. There will be a wire with a loose screw; tighten it.
5. There may be a broken wire near the screw; if so, remove the eyelet that is on the screw. put the screw back on and wrap the broken wire end onto the screw and tighten.
6. Replace the back plate.
7. Plug back in and use for a few more years.

Hope this helps!

Plug heating up


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
