Try opening the iron and see if the wires are connected to the thermostat/heating element, if not you can easily tie them again, it sometimes happens when the thermostat fails to open the circuit and the heating elements over heat and causes a break in the line or heating element.

How do I find out why my singer magic press 4 won't work? no light comes on, no heat


Assuming you have tried different power points in the house, it is likely the mains cable plug of the iron is faulty. Worst the cutoff fuse or control inside has tripped. Would suggest if mains cable or plug is ok then buy a new iron as these can be risky to repair without knowing what one is doing.

The plug and wire near the plug on my Rowenta iron gets very hot when I use it


The plug is not making proper contact in the wall socket. Clean the pins with steel wool or pot scourer. Do not use water. If you are using a double adapter remove it as it could be the cause of the poor contact. If the problem persist, try a different wall socket and get a qualified person to fix the faulty wall socket.

Will not light and will not heat up


Problems like this assume the iron is at fault. but may not be.

Check the wall socket you are using works with other appliances.

If you use the iron via an extension lead, check that the lead is working by checking with another appliance also.

Take out the fuse in the plug of the iron and put into another appliance to test its working and not fused.

Only if all is well at this point should you bin the iron.

Flat 'hot plate' irons are so cheap nowadays, so bin it and get an new one. The best are steam generator irons with a reservoir of water container attached. Mine cost £30/$60 so spend wisely.

How to use the calc-clean button


Calc-Clean function
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.

To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.

Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.

Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.

When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.

Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

Why isn't my Iron heating up? Just finished filling my Krups V65 iron with water. Was ironing linen shirt on linen setting, all of a sudden, heat dropped all the way down to light one (very low heat) and...


I do believe the thermostat is defective.All the iron have a small thermastat top control the temperature and is working like a switch.If the switch don`t work get stuck on the same position.Unfortunatly sometimes is better get a new one themn fix an old one but this is The Market and nothing i can do personally.Also make sure the thermostat knob is working properly.If you hear a click when you turn is ok.
Good Luck

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
