Question about Black & Decker Irons

Open Question

Hi, I have a new B&D iron model ICR505 which I have used once. I plug it in the socket but I can't get it to turn on. Did I accidentally lock it with one of these buttons? I am not familiar with them yet. Thanks for your answer.

My panasonic NI22AWTXJ iron is not powering

Get a multimeter. Check that the fuse is OK. If it is ok, open the cover at the back of the iron. Plug in the iron. Be careful not to get electrocuted. Check that the cables from the socket on the wall have power. place the leads of the multimeter on the live and neutral and check for 240V or 110v depending on your country. If no power here cable could have a problem.
If there is power here, turn of power and unplug socket. open top cover, you will see the heating element. Check for continuity between the ends of the element, If no continuity the element is dead and you need to buy a new iron. If it has continuity then check continuity of other components connected in series with the element. Some models a limit thermostat to prevent the iron from over heating. This looks like a small resistor about one centimeter long, if it has no continuity, cut it off and bypass it. It is a safety device that fails when it senses high temperatures in case the main control thermostat fails. If you can find a replacement replace it, if you cant find a replacement, you can use it and hope the main thermostat does not fail.

The plug and wire near the plug on my Rowenta iron gets very hot when I use it

The plug is not making proper contact in the wall socket. Clean the pins with steel wool or pot scourer. Do not use water. If you are using a double adapter remove it as it could be the cause of the poor contact. If the problem persist, try a different wall socket and get a qualified person to fix the faulty wall socket.

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure 1) power is on to the outlet, 2) check the electrical cord and 3) check the thermostat and replace if necessary. Use the VOM.

MY Rowenta Superpress 050 iron is not getting hot. Thank you.

The first thing to check is the electric socket outlet the iron is plugged in to.
Plug something in that you know is working o/k ,this will prove whether it is the socket or the iron.
If the socket is o/k then the next thing to check is the plug on the iron.
Undo the plug if it has a removeable cover, and check that the connections are good, and check the fuse if it has one, if you are not sure about the fuse, then change it for one that you know is o/k.
If it is a sealed plug then check the electric cord is not chafed or broken near the plug.

Check the cord at the point where it goes into the iron also.

If you are satisfied that all is o/k then the fault is in the iron.
I do recommend that you proceed no furher, unless you are fully competent with electrics, and know what you are doing.
If you are satisfied that it is faulty.It is usually cheaper to buy a new iron, rather than trying to repair it.
Hope my comments are of help to you.

The thermostats gone.
try using it on very cool temprature setting.
See if it lasts longer.
Not worth the trouble of replacing a thermostat.
I,d buy a new Iron.
