How to get Braun curling iron to heat?

Delilah, if it is a new curling iron and you plug it into a known good working outlet and does not heat up, it is defective. Return it to store for replacement or refund. If it is older and out of warranty, it is probably burnt out limit switch or may need rewired with new plug and cord(probably not cost effective, unless you can test and change)
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I replace the cord on my steam iron?

You can buy replacement cords and ends at any decent hardware store to make your own cord. However you need to disassemble your iron to make the change. I would only recommend trying this if you are familiar with doing such a task, you wouldn't want to risk a misfire and causing a fire.

The iron turns itself off while I'm ironing. Whats the problem?

I noticed the same problem my friend. The problem with mine was that the wire was having some kind of partial contact at the end inside the iron. The wire was twisted and tangled. I will advice You to
  1. Unscrew the iron from the compartment at the back of the iron,
  2. Then You force up the control of the iron,
  3. You will see 2 screws side by side, unscrew them open to release the lower part of the iron,
  4. Tail the wire to part that it is connected to in the iron,
  5. Then you unscrew the screws that hold the wire and disconnect it from the iron, then you Cut the rough edge of the wire or you can replace the wire completely,
  6. Reverse the process to reassemble the iron back together.
Also another cause might be that the connection to the power socket is loose and disconnects itself while you are ironing. In that case, it is the socket you are to replace.
Some irons are also made that way, that once it gets too hot and is not being controlled, the power will cut off its power supply by itself.
That should do the job for you. Hope this information was helpful.

Broun iron (model SI6285) quit working

Small appliances nowadays aren't really designed to be taken apart. Most likely there wont be replacement parts, you are probably better off just buying a new one.

My Braun Si 3120 Optistyle Iron is leaking water from steam holes

Scale buildup is unseating the rubber seal. Disassemble the iron. (Water filler hole part pulls directly forwards and can be pushed out from behind with a screwdriver.) Otherwise it's fairly straightforward. Clean scale off baseplate. Seal with silcone gasket before reassembly.

Autoshut off red light keeps flashing

I had the same problem and eventually removed the tilt sensor. This is the molded board that you see when you open the back of the iron. By removing it, you will also loose the timer off function. The thermostat will still be operational.

Red light flashing

Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
