My russel hobbs iron is allways hot and i cant put it low or warm.

This is a problem with the thermostat- possible that the bimetal is stuck or short or changed in alignment causing the power to be connected at all times and not cutting off.If you can remove the unit then this can be seen by checking the cut off of the control.

My Rowenta Power Glide DE-08 iron has stopped working. Once, if I moved the cord around it worked. So I I took it apart and checked the wiring connection which seemed to be tight. I then plugged it in...


you will probably find that the cable is broken where it comes out of the iron.
this is not an unusual problem as the wire is being constantly bent and straightened here, and eventually breaks.

take the iron apart as you did before to check the connections, and cut of the last 4-5 inches of the cable and reconnect in exactly the same way it is now.
this should cure the problem.

hope this helps

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.

The automatic shut off quit working. Stays on all the time unless it's unplugged


The thermostat must be replaced.

The iron uses a thermal cut off that will disconnect power to the element when the top temperature is reached.

In your case the thermostat is shorted inside, and will never cut off.

The part can be ordered calling B&D at their customer support number, listed on the owners manual.

Iron got really hot, like it overheated, then the light stayed on, but the heat seemed to go off and water came out the bottom of the iron. What do I do now?

Stopped heating

I work for Black & Decker. Any part that someone is telling you to purchase for that iron isn't from Black & Decker. Their irons are no designed to be repaired. If the iron is no longer heating, it needs to be replaced. Please call our customer service department at 800-231-9786 so that we may determine your warranty status.

The iron seems like it is on but no steams come out I will mess with the wire and then too much steams comes out and I have water stains

Power Cord is bad and power cuts on and off not allowing the proper heat. When power cuts off you lose heat and the iron fills up with water and not steam then when power returns you have to much steam.
