Question about Irons

1 Answer

Good Morning. I have a B&D ProFinish Premium Iron which I purchased in 1998 - I've been very satisfied with its performance and only the cord has been replaced. Today, however, despite the gauge being set at 4 and up, no heat is possible. What do you think I should do?

My Pro Finish 714 cord was accidentally cut. Is it worth replacing the cord? Where do you get a new cord and can I replace it myself?

Thank you for using FixYa. Is the cord cut near the iron end or the outlet end? could the cord be shortened? A new cord can be purchased at most reasonable hardware stores and with a little care and attention can be replaced yourself.

Hope this has been of some help.

The electrical cord is very hot at the point where the cord enters the iron

mcdevito75 here, You may have a problem with the heating element in your iron, Check to see if you have a Warrantee if so, return the iron to Black & Decker. In the meantime look for an appliance repair shop in your area and have the iron checked out.

Iron requires new cord

I don't know what brand of iron you have, but most irons are not repairable. I work for Black & Decker and if you needed a new cord for one of our irons, you'd have to replace the iron.

Unless you paid a small fortune for your iron ($100+) and you can see where the cord on your iron is able to be pulled out without taking the iron apart, chances are you'll have to purchase a new iron.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.
