SOURCE: Iron causing electrical fuse to trip

I would almost definitely say yes. Have a friend or family member bring their iron over and try it. I can think of no other reason why it would trip a breaker. Let me know what happens.

SOURCE: Steam iron trips the main fuse

It could be your iron drawing too much current but it sounds more likely that you have a weak circuit breaker on that circuit. You might try the iron on a different house circuit to confirm if its actually the iron or the house breaker giving you problems.

My Iron keeps tripping the fuse in main power box what is causing this it doesn't happen with any other appliances?


Tripping the breaker or fuse as you call it is caused by excessive current draw. These are safety devices that are meant to protect from electrical overloads and fires. More than likely your iron has a failing heating element and should be replaced. If it is a steam iron it is also possible that it has developed an internal water leak causing a short. Continued use is unwise and a potential safety hazard.

Iron not working no power nolights


check the circuit breaker in the main fuse box in case a breaker has tripped.
check the fuse in the power plug, if it is no good replace it.
Try the iron in another socket /outlet in case the one you are using is faulty.

I have a Bosch b52l iron, when i turn on the steam button, it cuts off the power, what could it be


It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.

Option 1)
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.

Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).

Try the solutions in that order.
