My iron's MODEL: 14977Z The iron's red light is on but won't heat to iron. was working a couple of hours ago

This is typical of a iron, it is cheaper to replace than to repair. The heating element is broken.

How to clean

Clean just like a coffee pot. Fill with white viniger, let heat up, press the steam button a few times to be sure viniger is in the holes. Now turn it off, place it in its rest position and let sit for an hour or so. When you are finished empty it out and rinse a few times with regualr water until there is no more viniger smell.

your iron has a thermostat fault its this thermostat thats cutting in and out that puts the red light on it could be fixed but that wont be a cheap fix best bet is to buy a new iron as that would work out cheaper

The appliance turn on, but no heating.

I would suggest that if it is not under warranty replace it.

OVerheats - no control-thermostat? Can this be replaced?

Yes but it is probably cheaper to buy a new iron

The days of repairing small appliances went out of the door some 15 years ago.

Minimum 1 hour labour charge plus the parts cost at whatever Westinghouse want to charge will be circa $40

You then have an iron with and old tank , and old element etc etc waiting to go wrong to cost you another fee

Red light keeps blinking and iron shuts off

Sounds as if the cable may be damaged or a loose connection. May be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

Iron will not heat up when it is on. The lights come on when plugged in but not the heat.

Your electric iron probably has an open heating element.. Probably not worth repairing.. since thecost to repair might be equal to the cost to replace.. Wrinkled clothes are making a comeback... ( at least .. in my house..LOL) Good luck my friend !

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.
