Hi,

You will need to dismantle your iron. Follow the instructions below to locate the fault:

a. Make sure the power cord is not damaged.

b. Then, check the temperature selector. If it is in the correct position, something else is wrong.

c. Check the thermostat. As you disassemble the iron, clean the lint from the thermostat. Then test it with your ohmmeter. Set your ohmmeter on RX1 and clip the probes onto the terminal. Take a piece of wood or plastic and move the contacts open, then closed. When it closes you should see the ohmmeter just from high to zero. It so, it is working well.

d. Test the heating element. Do this by removing the base of the iron. There you should see the probes. Take you ohmmeter, set on RX1, and touch the probes. If it reads between 10 to 25 ohms, it is working correctly.

e. If you have an electronic iron, the only other possibility is the circuit board. If you have exhausted your options, take the iron to a professional.


Thank you.

Wont turn on


see this steps and fix it. God bless you
As with many small appliances, regular maintenance makes a dramatic difference in how trouble free your electric iron will be. Even so, things can happen.
If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical cord, and check the thermostat (see the Appliance Controls Fix-It Guide) and replace if necessary.

Check and test this possible fault:
- Blown fuse
- Faulty or broken thermostat
- Broken power cords

Hope helps.

On my iron all of the lights come, but iron wont heat up


Hi,

Short answer is yes...but you would probably have issues with other appliances also if you had a power surge...

Here is a tip that will help you to troubleshoot your iron and figure out what is wrong with it.

Wont turn on


I agree.

It is probably a loose screw (if you shake the iron, you may hear it rattle).. The iron is most likely good, just needs a 5 minute repair.

If you want to do it, or find someone to do it:
1. UNPLUG the iron.
2. remove the 4 screws from the back end of the iron.
3. Open the back plastic plate.
4. There will be a wire with a loose screw; tighten it.
5. There may be a broken wire near the screw; if so, remove the eyelet that is on the screw. put the screw back on and wrap the broken wire end onto the screw and tighten.
6. Replace the back plate.
7. Plug back in and use for a few more years.

Hope this helps!
