Question about Irons
Iron has light on so power is there however iron wont heat
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.
