Question about Dryers

Open Question

No lights and no heat when plugged in. Is there a fuse inside the iron? How do I disassemble it to the point that I can see if the heating element is broke or the fuse is blown? Thanks

Additional information on the iron. It is a Hamilton Beach type 146 Model 14560 & series A2440CB. Thanks.

SOURCE: water leaking out of iron

The Use and Care Guide for the Hamilton Beach Iron can be downloaded here:

http://useandcares.hamiltonbeach.com/files/840091300.pdf

If water is leaking out of the iron:

• Do not overfill the water tank.

• If steam ironing, is Adjustable Steam Knob in a steam position that matches Temperature Control Dial steam range? Did the iron have enough time to preheat?
• If dry ironing, make sure the Adjustable Steam Knob is in the DRY IRON position.

Bosch iron TDA76 light comes, on no heat


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The problem is either from the heating element or a disconnected/loosed wire.

Get a screw driver disassemble the iron and check for any visible wire disconnection or burn. If all wire connection in the iron are intact, then it means the heating element of the iron is defective and needs to be replaced.

Good luck.

Will not heat, the start light will come on but will not heat


It is probably the thermal fuse that has blown. This is mounted on the base of the iron and requires a near total strip of the appliance. It is mounted in series with the element and looks like a metal resistor, inside a fibre glass woven sleeve. Should the thermal fuse prove not to be the problem it could also be the element itself.

We have a Rowenta iron effective model DX1700, less than a year old. It will not heat. Is there an iron made that will give satisfactory service for more than a year? Are they repairable?


If the cord and plug are ok (the wires in the cord often break just at the cord protector at the iron) the most likely other problems will be the thermal fuse(s) or the element. Thermal fuses can be replaced but if the element is gone that is unfortunately that. Take the back cover off and check for continuity from the plug to the inside connections using a test light or multimeter (the iron is of course unplugged).

I have a 4045 model iron, extremely happy with it. Recently, when I plug in the iron the light goes on but it does not heat up at all. Any way to fix it or is it busted. Suggestions would be appreciated.



Hi,

Heatman101 posted this on the site......

"If you go to use your Electric Iron and it does not work you may be wondering what could have gone wrong. Actually there are only a few things that can go wrong with this handy little appliance.

The first thing to check is to make sure that you actually have electric power getting to the steam iron. Many times the problem is simply caused by a tripped circuit breaker, a faulty outlet, a worn or broken plug on the end of the cord, or in some cases, a fuse that is in the plug. Another common problem is for the cord of the clothing iron to break at the point where it enters the handle of the iron. By checking that you have power actually getting to the internal parts of the electric iron, you eliminate one set of common problems.

Next you need to check that the power is getting to the heating element. For the power to get to the heating elements of the iron it needs to go through the power switch and the thermostat. On some irons the power switch will be included in the iron thermostat and on others the on/off switch will be a separate switch. In either case you will need to make sure that there is continuity, or the ability for the power to flow through the switch and thermostat to get to the heating part of the iron. The thermostat is just an on/off switch that works on the temperature of the base of the iron. So whenever the iron is cold the thermostat should be closed, allowing the power to flow through it.

If the power can get to the heating element of the iron, then it should get hot. If it is not, then the heating part has failed. Sometimes, when this happens it will short out and cause the fuse to blow or the circuit breaker to trip. Many times though, the element will just simply burn out or break so that the circuit is open and the electricity cannot flow through to make the element produce heat.

If your iron is getting too hot or not hot enough then the problem will almost always be in the thermostat. Sometimes it may be a simple thermostat calibration problem, but it also can be that the thermostat simply will not work properly anymore.

This should give you a basic troubleshooting guide for home electric irons and steam irons. As you can see, there are not many parts that can fail and troubleshooting the few parts that can fail, is relatively simple with a basic electric meter."

Sounds like either power isn't getting to the heating element, or the element is bad.

Good Luck

check plug fuse, if ok, check continuity of the live, neutral and earth conductors for a break. if ok, element may be faulty. Any smell of carbon burning?

My iron light goes on but does not heat up


Like many other appliances that use heat to perform their function, your iron probably has a a thermal fuse inside to prevent fires if the intended heat range is exceeded. These fuses are cylindrical with one pointed end (this one connected to the metal case) and the other flat and ~ 4-5 mm diameter and 10-12 mm length.
They are normally spot welded to one end of the heater element and can't be replaced using normal solder due to the exposure to heat.
I suspect a repair would be economically a bad move.
