Question about Black & Decker Irons
For safety purposes, just about any electrical device that heats will have a thermal fuse built into them to prevent fires and these (ALL Chinese) are very poorly made and unreliable in operation.
The design temperature is only rarely the same as the actual temperature at which the devices go open and interrupt current.
Sometimes, the design temperature is printed on these fuses and they are available as replacement parts but are almost always welded in place and are not practically replaceable.
If someone bothers to open the iron, look for a metal tube ~ 3/4" long and 1/4" in diameter with one end wire obviously connected to the case of the fuse and the other centered in a glass seal.
I once had three identical coffee makers fail within a few days of being new and finally took a refund instead of trying a fourth one.
