Question about Panasonic NIA56NR NI-A56NR Iron

1 Answer

NIA56NR Iron = Panasonic

In the middle of Ironing clothes the Iron just stopped heating. This I is only two years old. Tried plugging it into several different outlets, turning it off and on and left it off over night and nothing seems to work. From the number of complaints listed it looks like this is a very common problem with this unit. What is Panasonic doing about it?

    i was using my iron one minute and the next minute it would no longer heat. i too unplugged it and tried a different outlet with no success. I really liked the iron. so whats cheaper a new iron or replacing the filament?

    Worked just fine with steam and spray and then yesterday it simply stopped working, acting like I blew its fuse. I have tried various outlets with lamps first and then the iron, let it rest for a few hours, tried again, no luck.
    Can you tell me what might have happened.
    It has never been over used or dropped.

    I have the exact same problem! I have had it two years and have used it probably a total of 30 hours. In the middle or ironing today, it died and leaked water out of some of the holes on the plate. I let it cool, then plugged it in elsewhere. Nothing helped.

    Same Problem...Panasonic said they only warranty if for 1 year...HOW CONVENIENT it's been 1-1/2 years. I paid more for this iron because I thought it might be a good one and it would last. My other iron lasted nearly 7 years and would still be going if I hadn't gotten rid of it and it even went thru the washing machine with a load of laundry! I'm not buying anymore panasonic junk.

It is sticky and looks like glue.It looks gooey

Hello :

Here I'm going to tell you the basics of cleaning your Rowenta iron :

Things You'll Need:1:Rowenta Soleplate Cleaning Kit
2: Ironing board
3:Clean, dry cloth
4:Two cotton terry cloths, such as washcloths

Now to the cleaning :

1:Pour out any water from the iron. Turn the steam iron on to the "Cotton" setting, which is the one with three dots on the settings dial.

2:Cover an area of the ironing board with a clean, dry cloth. Fold one washcloth or other piece of cotton terry cloth in half and place it onto the cloth on the ironing board.

3:Dispense a 2-inch long daub of cleaning solution onto the terry cloth. Run the heated iron over the cloth directly on the cleaning solution. Move the steam iron in a circular motion over the cleaner on the cloth for a minute or two.

4:Remove the steam iron from the cloth. Carefully wipe any remaining cleaning solution from the soleplate using the second terry cloth.

5:Add water to the steam iron. Turn on the "Steam" or "Burst of Steam" feature. Run the iron over the clean, dry cloth on the ironing board to ensure the cleaning product is entirely gone from the soleplate.

Iron heating sporadically and sensor lights working sporadically

sounds like a loose connection in the power transfer, some piece of metal may be broken or the cord itself may be damaged in some place, you could try replacing the cord. I would just go and buy a new iron. They aren't all that expensive anymore. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I hope you solve your problem. If you want any further help or have any other questions, please let me know, otherwise have a Good Day.

Panasonic Iron won't heat

most iron cases can not be seperated from the iron plate but, if you can take off the bottom plate you will see a heating element and attached to that a small cylinder it has a point on one side and a flat end on the other it is called a thermal fuse and radioshack sells them
they are made in different versions so take the fuse in to get the right one clip it back in and your iron should work again

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
